On the 19th of October the University Council will vote on whether the University should divest from fossil fuels. Join us in counting down to this important vote.
Cambridge Zero Carbon Society is a student campaigning group promoting climate justice issues and divestment within the University of Cambridge. We started in 2007 as a group concerned about climate change and we relaunched in 2015 mainly focused around divestment. The University of Cambridge has £377 million of its endowment fund invested in fossil fuels and for the past 5 years the society has been calling for that money to be transferred away from extractive industries that are causing devastation to communities around the world, particularly in the global south. The coming weeks are crucial for the divestment campaign. On the 21st of September the University will release its report on divestment, after which we will be able to release more information about the decision.
