ALDC are teaming up with Divest UK to offer an exclusive webinar briefing for Liberal Democrats to discuss how to to best fight for Fossil Fuel Divestment within Local Authority Pension Funds.
The webinar will be held on Monday 29 November 2021 at 17:00 to 18:30. It is completely free and you can register to attend here.
The event will include:
• An introduction to the briefing and why ending fossil fuel investments should be a priority for Lib Dem councillors by UK Divest.
• Why divestment is the financially sensible thing to do by Mark Campanale, founder of Carbon Tracker, the world-leading green financial thinktank.
• A case study on divestment from Shropshire by Liberal Democrat Councillors on the pension fund who are voting to divest at the end of this month.
• A question and answer session where you can put your questions to the panellists.
Mark Campanale’s influential work has been described in the New Yorker as being responsible for ‘turning the financial world’s view of climate upside down’.
Please do not miss this chance to hear from him and from Lib Dem Councillors who have really pushed for this within their own Council’s and Pension Funds.
All Lib Dems are welcome and please pass this invite along to anyone who might be interested. Remember you need to register in advance and you can do that here.
Divest UK have also produced a written briefing for Lib Dem Councillors on how to fight for divestment in your Council Pension Fund – which you can find here.
Divestment is clearly the future direction template in ecology pathways for financial long term discipline for local Councils, over the coming decades, to defeat the encroachment of `Global Warming,' across Neighbourhoods.
