Universities, religious institutions, pension funds and many other organisations invest large amounts of money in stocks as a way of generating income. There have been calls for these organisations to remove the capital they have invested in fossil fuel companies to make a stand against the carbon emissions that they are responsible for.
Is divestment a powerful tool to direct the funding of oil companies towards more sustainable means or is it a meaningless gesture?
We bring together a panel, including Dave Gorman, Director of Social Responsibility and Sustainability at the University of Edinburgh, and management scholar Prof Timothy Devinney to discuss these contentious issues.
Tickets £8.50/ £6.50. #SciPals student ticket offer is available on this event.
