A practical guide to divestment
Have you ever wondered what your money does when you are not spending it? Are you concerned that it might help the fossil fuel industry to drive the destruction of our climate system? Are you concerned that your pension fund is investing in open-pit lignite mines in Germany? And have you heard or read about Hambacher Forst and feel helpless in face of the destruction happening there?
If you answered any of the questions above with “yes” then we might have answers AND solutions for you! During the sustainability week, we will hold an event called “A practical guide to Divestment”.
At our seminar, we will inform you about:
- Why divestment matters
- How to start your own divestment campaign
- How to divest your Swedish pension
- Which bank to choose if you want to divest your assets
Olov Källgarn (Fossil Free Sweden) and Henner Busch (Lund University) will lead the seminar. There will be orange snacks, time to ask your questions and practical help so you can divest your pension RIGHT AT THE SEMINAR (actually, it only takes a couple of minutes but it might have big implications!). Bring a laptop if you have one, but we will make sure that some computers will be available for direct divestment of your pension.
The event is open to everyone who is interested! No university affiliation needed!
We will hold the event on Thursday, 11th of April from 16-18 at Magle Konserthus, Magle Stora Kyrkogatan 4, in central Lund.
