UNSW to divest from fossil fuels


Students, staff and alumni calling on UNSW to divest from fossil fuels. Join the campaign. Climate change is the biggest challenge facing our generation. We know that the burning of fossil fuels, such as coal and gas, is causing this irrevocable warming. Despite this, UNSW still invests millions of dollars in the fossil fuel industry. Fossil Free UNSW is a movement of students, staff and alumni asking UNSW to take moral leadership and divest from fossil fuels, to erode the social and financial license this industry uses to corrupt our politics and block strong climate action.
