Divestment workshop next week: Wednesday 20 August, 7pm at Kapiti College mezzanine (above the NEW GYM), Margaret Rd, Raumati Beach.
Presenter: Ashlee Gross from 350 Aotearoa
Find out how you can join a rapidly growing global movement tackling climate change from a new angle. Students, customers and members are asking their institutions, from universities to banks, to pension funds, to stop investing their money in fossil fuel companies. Nearly 100 organisations worldwide have already committed to divest and, with recent announcements from the Dunedin City Council and the Anglican Church of Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia, the movement has solidly spread to New Zealand.
Join 350 Aotearoa (www.350.org.nz) for an evening talk and Q&A on the ethical argument for divestment and how it helps tackle climate change, an overview of what's happening globally, and to find out how you can get involved in New Zealand, including through talking to your KiwiSaver provider, university or other institutions you're a part of.
RSVP if you can to Ashlee@350.org.nz or turn up anyway.
