uOttawa Divestment Campaign a Success!

uO sustainabilityAs a member of the University of Ottawa’s committee for sustainable development and one of the founding signatories of the uOttawa fossil-fuel divestment campaign I am thrilled to announce that the Board of Governors voted this week to adopt a position of fossil-fuel divestment for uOttawa.  This courageous but necessary move has positioned uOttawa as a sustainability leader, as we are the first Canadian University to commit to divesting our financial investments away from those that contribute to climate change and to move our economic assets to portfolios that will support alternative energies and Canadian entrepreneurial innovation.  Congratulations University of Ottawa on your principled and ground-breaking stand on this most important issue!
