Go Fossil Free Campaign: The first divestment meeting

Tue 18 Mar 2014, 5.30 to 7pm Blue Moon cafe (upstairs) 2 St James St. S1 2EW

Lots of things are happening in the local divestment from fossil fuels campaign with People and Planet taking action at both Universities and the Bishop of Sheffield taking a high profile lead in Sheffield Diocese and nationally. Sheffield Climate Alliance will focus on continuing to lobby the South Yorkshire Pension Authority (SYPA) to re-consider their investments in fossil fuels. There are 12 Councillors from South Yorkshire on the SYPA committee. After a petition of SYPA last year it appears they are not yet convinced of the need to re-consider their fossil fuel investments. The meeting will be discussing their reply and reviewing a draft flyer for the campaign. This is a first meeting and everyone is welcome to attend; it would be great to have people there who have a pension with SYPA (Local Government Pension Fund), from anywhere in South Yorks. If you can't come along but are interested in being a contact for the campaign, or would like to see a copy of SYPA's reply, please email
