Description

Join the fight to divest Wales from harmful fossil fuels and learn how to lobby your MP, Councillor and university Chancellor on climate change!

As well as an informative and engaging workshop where we will be sharing skills and ideas, we will also be looking to devise a plan to achieve an all-Wales divestment commitment.

Brought to you by Divest Parliament in partnership with Friends of the Earth and 350.org, this FREE and exciting training and strategy afternoon is your opportunity to learn, and put into practice, the best techniques, tricks and strategies to convince your MP (and those in positions of power across Wales) to get behind a clean energy future and divest funds away from fossil fuels.

As well as free refreshments and delicious snacks - now we’ve got you hooked :) - you can expect to…

- Meet others who are campaigning for a fossil-free future in Wales and learn about the various campaigns taking place.
- Devise a plan to achieve an all-Wales divestment commitment
- Learn, discuss, act-out and practice techniques for successful lobbying on divestment and climate change.
- Learn more about divestment in Wales, the Future Generations Act and how council pensions will soon be pooled together across the country.
- Join or help start a local divestment group in your area and ask your MP or elected official to divest from fossil fuels in defence of our environment.

Divestment across the globe is undermining the credibility of the fossil fuel industry, breaking its political power and helping to drive the transition to renewable energy. Over $5.5 trillion worth of funds from countries, cities, councils, universities and otherinstitutes around the world have committed to divestment. It’s high time that Wales stood up to the mark too!

Join us and discuss what part you can play in bringing about a fossil-free Wales!
