Fossil Free Health Liverpool – divestment film and discussion
May 14, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
This is the last in a series of health focused events during Global Divestment Mobilisation week. Please join us at the HUS bar, Liverpool where organisers of fossil free health, the health divestment campaign, will discuss why now, more than ever, health institutions must divest fossil fuels. Climate change is potentially the biggest threat to global health this century, and health institutions must show leadership in saying we will not fund the industries that are driving the problem. Two years ago we produced the groundbreaking report Unhealthy Investments, which has influenced health divestment decisions in countries around the world. At this event we’ll be presenting a new report that profiles some of those case studies, and outlines how to undertake the divestment process.
Speakers will discuss:
- The health impacts of climate change,
- What divestment means for action on climate change,
- What the campaign has achieved so far,
- and how you can get involved!
Speakers include Eliot Waterhouse, fossil free health campaigner at Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, Dr Geraint Davies, University of Liverpool, and Alice Munro, Fossil Free Health coordinator, Medact.
Spaces are limited so please RSVP below.
