Fossil Free Melbourne University

Call on our university to divest from the fossil fuel industry

Did you know that Melbourne University is investing in fossil fuels? By continuing to support this reckless industry, the University is profiting at the expense of its students and their futures.

Divestment aims to reduce the social license of the fossil fuels industry, loosening the grip it has over our political system and allowing for climate legislation that is in line with the science. Since 2013, students, staff, and alumni have been campaigning for our University to divest from the top 200 worst coal, oil, and gas companies (known as the Carbon Underground 200).
