DO Details

Fighting Climate Change by Divesting from Fossil Fuel! If it is wrong to wreck the climate, then it is wrong to profit from that wreckage.

Join us for what will be a forum for change, examining why UQ MUST be a part of the rapidly growing international movement of divesting of Fossil Fuel Investments! 

"Divestment is the opposite of an investment – it simply means getting rid of stocks, bonds, or investment funds that are unethical or morally ambiguous. Fossil fuel investments are a risk for both investors and the planet."
This is why we are calling on UQ to divest itself of its investments from companies dealing in Fossil Fuels!

The event will see quick and punchy presentations from :

  • our own Fossil Free UQ team
  • Karen McLeod - Australian Ethical Investments, Financial risk of investing in the fossil fuel industry
  • Kristen Lyons - UQ Associate Professor in Sociology, Fossil Fuel Divestment, Research integrity and Academic freedoms.

Followed by a Q&A sessions after each presentation and at the end of the forum.

MC will  be Jyoti Jude Menon, Convenor of Oxfam UQ

FREE Light refreshments and Fair Trade Coffee and Tea will be served just prior to the event (11.45am -12 pm)

This is truly an amazing opportunity to find out how we at UQ can actually combat Climate Change in a meaningful and significant way, and how YOU can be a part of that movement! for very real change!
