Links to ECA articles on the case for fossil fuel divestment

Adam Davidson-Harden

As educator-activists associated with the Educators’ Climate Alliance prepare to table resolutions and motions at this year’s coming meeting of AMPA, the annual gathering of the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation, ECA member Andrea Loken has put together this collection of links that discuss the case for fossil fuel divestment.  This strategy is still a vital and viable tactic within the larger array of political and economic moves we need to make to transition away from fossil fuels in the attempt to mitigate climate change.  It was thrilling to see the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario pass a motion to work toward furthering the fossil fuel divestment movement.  We hope that the OSSTF will help contribute to this global movement as well.
