The campaign to get investors to divest from fossil fuels, kicked off so spectacularly by the Anglican Church last month, has taken another step with the launch of a series of “Let’s Talk Divestment!” forums around the country, organised by 350 Aotearoa. After a successful first forum is in Auckland, the Wellington forum is next:
When: Wednesday 6 November, 6-8pm

What’s it about?
What is divestment? What will it contribute to the movement for a healthy climate and sustainable future? What are the alternatives and how can we demand divestment of institutions? Come to one of the events nearest to you – hear the financial experts explaining the financial case of fossil fuel divestment, NZ community members telling about local climate change impacts, climate action leaders sharing stories about previous and future actions, and find out how can you be part of it.
