I woke up this morning to find a local volunteer in Melbourne, Australia had sent me a magazine. No – not a magazine about the royal couple’s new baby. All congratulations to that royal couple, but really, this magazine is far more interesting: the Global Fossil Fuel Divestment Movement magazine!
It was less than two months ago that we officially launched divestment campaigning in Australia, during Bill McKibben’s Do the Maths tour. Since then it’s been a scramble for us to keep up with the explosion of divestment campaigning across the country, from university campuses to churches, to towns and cities. At the sametime, we’ve been learning and sharing resources with divestment campaigners in the United States – who have even got Obama uttering the word “divest”. Now we’re looking to Europe as divestment looks set to take hold there in the coming months.
Graham Clark has been watching and documenting the movement closely and has pulled together many of it’s successes, highlights and stories into this epic 30 page online flip magazine. It’s truly inspiring to see how much this movement has achieved in a very short amount of time, and the momentum brewing for the coming months and years. So take a look, share and enjoy!
