300+ undersigned delegates to the Financing The Future Summit in Cape Town, South Africa send this message to the UN Secretary General’s Summit to be held on September 23rd 2019.
“We must all divest from fossil fuels and invest in solutions. Now. All people, governments (national and local) universities, places of worship, private and institutional investors must divest. We must remove our investments, subsidies, lines of credit and any other source of financial support for coal, oil, or gas projects and companies. Together we must invest, with public support, clear strong policies, and private investment in public, distributed and community-owned renewable energy for all. Not tomorrow. Not in 2030. Today.”
