Video - Investment and Divestment: Making Sustainable Choices with Campus Endowments

This webinar covers the topics of investment transparency, divestment of endowment resources from fossil fuels, sustainable investment strategies and options for higher education, and how to engage your campus in the discussion.

Divesting the campus endowment from fossil fuel resources is a move that is growing in popularity on campuses nationwide. Institutions like Hampshire College and Unity College, have passed policies to remove all endowment funds from fossil fuels and many other several student groups across the country are rallying to encourage their administrations to do the same.

The popularity of this issue presents a great opportunity to discuss fossil fuel divestment alongside other sustainable investment opportunities.

Webinar presenters include:
• Dan Apfel, Executive Director, Responsible Endowments Coalition
• Jillian Buckholz, Senior Programs Coordinator, AASHE
• Jamie Henn, Communication Director,
• Jesse Pyles, Sustainability Director, Unity College
