Enrolled in Coal: University Divestment from Fossil Fuels (pt. 1‪)‬ AmpliFIRE: Raising Voices Against Rising Temperatures

    • Education

You may have heard recent news about a growing list of American universities that are deciding to remove their investments in fossil fuel companies. This was no self-motivated act: students across the US have been charging for divestment for over a decade. In fact, a year ago students from several schools combined efforts to launch legal complaints against their universities for their financial entanglement with the fossil fuel industry. So how did we get here, and what work is left to do within higher education beyond divestment? Join Emory alumni Halle Bradshaw (‘18C, ‘19G) and Tyler Stern (‘16C) as they learn more about student divestment campaigns, their new legal strategy, and a wrinkle in investment practices that leads them back to their alma mater.

Interviews with Jade Woods, Alex Mardquat, and Peter Scott
