Are you a student?
Healthy Planet are a group of students and young people from across the UK who work to raise awareness of the links between environmental change and health. As well as being joint organisers of fossil free health, they are affiliated with Medsin, the global health society for medical and health science students across the UK. Medsin have organised a number of events and actions related to divestment, and we’re very excited that they will be making it their organising theme for 2017-2018. If you’re a student and would like to support divestment of health institutions, such as the BMA, then contact these organisations.
Meanwhile, People & Planet and the NUS have played a huge role in supporting university divestment campaigns, having contributed to over fifty university divestment commitments to date. If you want to support your university campaign they can connect you with people already working on it, as well as provide campaigns training and advice.
