Fossil Free ANU supporters with the report before the Council meeting

Today we are presenting the culmination of several months of campaigning to ANU Council. They are meeting this morning, and on the agenda is a “responsible investment policy”.

But the policy is too vague to divest fossil fuels, and Vice Chancellor Ian Young declined to hold a formal consultation process.

So we did it for him.

These 47 pages include:

● 586 signatures on our petition to date;
● 52 written submissions from individuals;
● Written submissions from the Conservation Council ACT, Australian Youth Climate Coalition ACT, and The Wilderness Society Newcastle;
● Statements of support from ANUSA SRC,NTEU ACT Division, and ANU’s
Environmental Management & Planning Committee;
● A video submission from Auntie Pamela Smith, an elder from Gomeroi
country in North West NSW, the area of coal seam gas operations by
Santos Ltd;
● More than 50 photo submissions;
● A comprehensive brief on the case for fossil fuel divestment from the ANU.
