UoM Divest Now! Protest at the EAUC Sustainability Conference

event on
19 June
2019

The University of Manchester is hosting a national conference for the ‘Alliance of Sustainability Leadership in Education’ whilst having over £11 million invested in fossil fuel companies…
The conference description says: ‘We all rely on our influence to get things done. Every time we meet a student, colleague or member of the senior management team we draw on our experience and skill to change hearts and minds.’…’we face a multitude of environmental, economic and socio-political challenges, so every opportunity to affect decision making is critical. Every interaction has the potential to change hearts, minds and institutional policy.’…’Don’t just inform, INFLUENCE!’

So here we are, using the influence of our 4 year campaign and support of the University of Manchester’s students to continue our fight to get the University to divest from fossil fuels. We will maintain a presence on campus through the conference with various activities planned. Come Join! Lets Influence!!!

Meet outside the SU at 9 on Wednesday, or follow the event page and we will post where we are
