By investing in companies still searching for and burning fossil fuels, Oxford is supporting an industry that is ignoring the strong science of climate change, and undermining our very futures. Calling for divestment places Oxford in a global community striving to inspire change, and place power away from large multinational corporations and back into the hands of the people.

Fossil fuel divestment makes sense, what doesn’t is our university doing research into the environmental and economic consequences of continued fossil fuel extraction and use. It’s an important political movement and is an opportunity for our student body to make a stand for our future.
