To Divest or Not to Divest?

350.org Hobart warmly invites you to a public divestment forum on Wednesday 18 September, exploring the issues around our investments in fossil fuels via our super funds and banks.
To Divest or Not to Divest? What can fossil fuel divestment offer our climate, communities and economy? 
Is our super safe? How should we invest?

Everyone’s talking about it. From Obama and Desmond Tutu to the IEA and Lord Stern. Already local governments, religious institutions, universities and major foundations have committed to divest from fossil fuels. 
But is divestment really the climate game changer it’s being made out to be? How do we go about doing it?
Come hear from our panel of experts asking these questions, including: 
  • Stuart Barry, Tas Ethical Financial Advisor
  • Paul Gilding, Internationally acclaimed sustainability consultant
  • Dr Frank Nicklason, Royal Hobart Hospital
  • Naomi Edwards, Chair of Tasplan
 When: 18:00 – 19:30, Wednesday 18th September
Where: Lecture Theatre 2, Medical Sciences Precinct, University of Tasmania, cnr Liverpool and Campbell St.
See tasdivest.org for more information.
