MANIFESTO FOR A FOSSIL FREE UNIVERSITY
Zak Coleman, Cambridge SU President (UG) 2021-22
This manifesto builds on the work of student and community climate justice campaigners. It seeks to highlight the University’s extensive entanglements with fossil fuels, the fossil fuel industry and its top funders.
In the wake of the University’s historic and hard-won divestment commitment, we lay out a set of urgent next steps aimed at uniting the Cambridge climate movement and ending our University’s complicity with the fossil fuel industry, urging it to fulfil its responsibilities to its students and frontline communities at this time of profound crisis.
