Funding the future: find out about divestment & ethical investment

Let’s talk about divestment and ethical investment

Presenter: Ashlee Gross, 350 Aotearoa

Wednesday 20 August, 7pm at Kapiti College mezzanine (above hall), Margaret Rd, Raumati Beach

Find out about a rapidly growing global movement that’s 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 (350.org.nz) for an evening talk and Q&A on the ethical argument for divestment, 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.
