“Momentum for Divestment” will feature speakers from across the global divestment movement, representing faith groups, cities, universities, foundations, and more, who will speak to the growing momentum for change. In the last year alone, the movement has seen a 50-fold increase in assets under management (now over $2.6 trillion) that is committed to some form of divestment. Together, institutions are modeling what we need to see from governments: clear commitments to move money out of fossil fuels and into climate solutions.
