FOSSIL FREE SOUTH AFRICA ANNOUNCES THEIR FIRST EVER DIVEST FEST

Welcome to 2018, and the slightly mad state of play in South Africa right now: Day Zero is rapidly approaching in Cape Town, while cities and institutions of the stature of New York and Lloyds of London (the world’s oldest insurance market) are divesting from fossil fuels – but South Africans still aren’t widely questioning why we allow companies like Sasol to continue pumping out enormous amounts of climate-breaking greenhouse gases without committing to science-based targets for reductions as genuinely responsible companies are doing.

So please save this date: On 24 February, Fossil Free SA, with 350 Africa, will be hosting their first Divest Fest, from 9.30am to 1.30pm, at 75 Harrington Street, Cape Town.

Divest Fest will be a morning of practical online climate and divestment action, with videos, mini-talks, brainstorming, and ample time to take practical action to push ahead fossil fuel divestment in South Africa (followed by lunch, possibly even with water!).

Bring your laptop or tablet, send Fossil Free South Africa any suggestions you have in advance, and get stuck in demanding ethical, safe, low-carbon and divested investment funds.
