Dear Friend,

With each week, our movement shows its colours ever brighter. Last week was no exception.

Last Tuesday, hundreds of students at 19 campuses around the country called on their universities to stop investing in the fossil fuel industries of the past. A picture tells a thousand words, so click on the image below to check out the photos that rolled in, and to see the momentum the campus groups are building.

And whilst our tertiary institutions’ engines for change are firing up, so too are the wider public’s.

Over the past 6 weeks, more than 750 of you have turned out to learn about the solutions that fossil fuel divestment offer our climate and communities as part of our public forums in Brisbane, Melbourne, Hobart, Canberra, Sydney (with Perth to come later this month).

200 of you have given up your evenings and weekends to attend our divestment trainings in Hobart, Adelaide, Melbourne, Canberra, Perth, Sydney and Brisbane – equipping yourselves to start shifting money out of the high carbon economy.

1000 of you have contacted your super funds and banks, asking them to stop funding climate change

To top it off, we now have over 100 volunteers nationally giving their time to divestment campaigns in Australia.

We’ve put together this infographic to celebrate how far we’ve all come…

It’s early days, but with the support and dedication you’ve shown so far, it’s clear that the challenging course we face is becoming easier by the day thanks to the movement you are building with us.

Whether you’re a student, retiree, professional, parent or grandparent, the divestment movement is about you, for you – your money, your future – this is your movement.

And as we grow, we can outgrow the problem, together.

For what you’ve given so far, and for what you will give, thank you.

Have a great weekend,

Charlie, Aaron and Blair on behalf of Australia
