Fossil Fuel Divestment for a Zero Carbon Future: Conference for Religious

February 14 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

“More than 1,000 organisations around the world including the Irish Catholic Bishops’ Conference, Caritas Internationalis, the Passionists in England & Wales, the Columban Missionaries and the Franciscan Sisters of Mary in the USA have taken the step of divesting (disinvesting) from fossil fuel companies in response to the global threat of climate change.
Join us for a conference for religious to find out more about how Catholic institutions are responding to the urgent call on climate change launched by Pope Francis in Laudato Si’. The conference will provide an opportunity to learn more about fossil fuel divestment and how you can get involved in supporting the clean energy transition to ensure a brighter, cleaner future for everyone. It will also be a chance to find out more about joining the next Catholic divestment announcement in July 2019.”
