350 dot org suggests to write to the Vice-Chancellors of Australia’s universities today calling on them to divest from fossil fuels

divestbeforeparisDear friend,

Over the past 2 days, students, staff and alumni from Australian universities came together to tell their universities to go fossil free and put divestment on the agenda of the Times Higher Education World Academic Summit in Melbourne.

Whilst local councils, churches,superannuation funds and thousands of Australians get with the times and ditch their investments in coal, oil and gas, Australia’s universities are dragging their heels.

Write to the Vice-Chancellors of Australia’s universities today calling on them to divest their endowments from fossil fuels in time for the UN Climate talks in Paris later this year.

With world leaders preparing for Paris, it is more important than ever that our universities show climate leadership where our government is so reluctant to.

As more thought leaders like universities move their investments away from fossil fuels and call for the same transition to take place across our economy,  the harder it will become for our new Prime Minister  to continue in Tony Abbott’s fossilised footsteps.

Call on all Australian universities to divest in time for Paris.

By divesting from fossil fuels, universities can help raise the bar of political ambition on climate action, creating room for legislation that is in line with the climate science –something that Australia desperately needs.

Write to Australia’s Vice-Chancellors today to make sure our universities live up to their role as thought leaders by divesting from fossil fuels in time for Paris.

Yours for a safe climate,

Vicky for 350.org Australia
