Keep it in the Ground: Divestment and Climate Change May 8th

Meeting to discuss
What we can do about climate change
And how divestment (selling fossil fuel investments) can help

Tue 8 May 2018
19:30 – 21:30


Meeting room
Watling Gardens Estate
97-135 Shoot-Up Hill

Do you want to do something about climate change? Come to this meeting, hosted by Divest Brent and Brent Friends of the Earth, and find out what you can do. We will hear from an experienced campaigner (supplemented by video clips) about the role that divestment (disposing of fossil fuel investments) has to play generally and in particular, locally, look at ways to encourage Brent Council’s wish to divest their Pension Fund which has nearly £40 million invested in fossil fuel companies. We will look at divestment success stories and why it is so effective. We will also look at other ways to transition to clean, renewable energy – and most importantly what you can do to contribute to this transition.

Doors open at 7 pm - come then for an opportunity, before the formal evening starts at 7.30 pm, to talk to people in Brent who are already working to combat climate change - and there will be another chance for informal discussion when the formal evening finishes at 9 pm.

Please note that in order to attend, although the event is free, you must first register for a ticket online at or by writing to Simon Erskine, 61 Mortimer Road, London, NW10 5QR. The location is very close to Kilburn underground station but not that easy to find from the map – when you register online you will find a link to directions – or ask Simon Erskine as above.
