Fossil Free UK, and other campaigns aimed at fossil fuel divestment, have swiftly grown into a movement to pull financial investment away from fossil fuel companies. It is the fastest growing divestment campaign of its kind in history, and activists are seeking to pull the ‘social licence’ to operate from oil companies.
This podcast features Ellen Gibson, the UK Divestment Network Coordinator with 350.org
, Sakina Sheikh, a local councillor and divestment campaigner with Platform and Chris Garrard, a composer and Co-Director of Culture Unstained.
The podcast is introduced by Chloe Hardy and produced by Whistledown Productions. It was recorded in front of an audience at the Sheila McKechnie Foundation. www.smk.org.uk If you would like to learn more about how social change works and campaigning we hold regular training with expert campaigners, for more information visit our website and sign up to our newsletter: https://smk.org.uk/newsletter/.
