Universities and public institutions should divest from fossil fuels to stand up for their younger members’ right to a safe future. Progress on climate change has been far too slow, so divestment is an easy way to send a very powerful message to the public, to politicians, to investors
and to companies.

I support the Fossil Free campaign because climate change is one of the gravest problems facing our generation. Divestment from companies who are contributing towards this phenomenon is a way of demonstrating that the actions of these companies are no longer acceptable and through this we can challenge their behaviour and promote a better future.
