On Saturday the 13th February look out for the campaigners from Divest Herts – we will be out and about in Watford, Bishops Stortford and St Albans! Come and say hi!
We will be taking part in the Climate Coalition’s ‘Show the Love’ campaign to raise awareness of climate change and asking local residents to sign the petition to Hertfordshire County Council to ask that it divest its pension fund from dirty fossil fuels.
See the new film ‘Show the Love’ written by Michael Morpugo for the Climate Coalition campaign:
Hertfordshire County Council’s pension fund affects over 180 employers in Hertfordshire, including St Albans District Council, many local schools, and voluntary sector groups. The fund currently holds £129,078,000 in investments in some of the world’s most polluting fossil fuel companies, such as Shell and Rio Tinto.
The UK-wide ‘Show the Love’ campaign organised by the Climate Coalition encourages its’ millions of supporters to share what they love that will be compromised by climate change. Hertfordshire’s beautiful countryside, our football grounds, our wildlife and the food on our plates will all be affected by climate change.
