Divest Harvard Presents: Forum on Fossil Fuel Divestment

When: Friday, November 8 from 3:30-5:00 pm

Where: Harvard University. Sever 113.

What: This event will create a platform for open and balanced discussion on climate change and how Harvard should address it, particularly focusing on the tactic of divestment. The Harvard community – members of the administration, faculty, students, staff and alumni – agree that climate change is an urgent concern that demands a significant and concerted response. Divest Harvard argues that divestment would send a powerful moral and political message in support of the wider transition towards a low carbon economy and therefore deserves to be discussed by the Harvard community.

The panelists will include four Harvard professors:

–Rebecca Henderson (HBS)
–Dan Schrag (FAS, Geology)
–John Coates (HLS)
–James Engell (FAS, English)

In addition, prominent climate activist Tim DeChristopher, a student at Harvard Divinity School, will represent the student voice.

The discussion will be moderated by the Harvard Undergraduate Council President, Tara Raghuveer and will include questions and input from audience members.
