On Sunday 22nd April, we held an intimate but very engaged discussion around divestment. We were joined by Dr James Smith from Fossil Free Cambridgeshire, who brought us all up to date on what divestment is, how the campaign developed and where we currently are in our progress.
We ended the discussion on what we can all do now, going forwards. It was clear there is a strong need to get out into our communities and talk to our family, colleagues, neighbours and anyone else that may be interested, to help spread the word on divestment.
We will be in Cambridge on Monday next week (8th May 17), engaging with local council workers, and then in Peterborough on Friday (12th May 17) doing the same. If you want to get involved, or have any questions, please do get in touch.
