Sustainable Cities Club members have been very active in trying to get the school to divest their endowments from fossil fuels. After a slight set back last year, the school’s direct involvement with the People’s Climate March has now given us leverage to demand that the school now “walk the walk” and become one of the largest universities to divest. If the Rockefellers can do it, so can we!
From canvassing town hall meetings to hosting divestment strategy sessions, students have shown their support for divestment at The New School, and will continue to advocate until the change is made.
Be sure to check back for upcoming divestment strategy sessions!
