Transition to a coal free campus

    1. Petition by

      Generation Zero

      Dunedin, New Zealand

The University of Otago is currently heated by lignite coal. This is a major barrier to the University's goals of sustainability and energy efficiency. In pursuance of the University of Otago becoming a national leader in sustainable practice and carbon neutrality, we urge that you support the transition to a coal-free campus. Specifically, the alternatives outlined in the Property Service's report regarding this issue and the implementation of these alternatives needs to be a priority

      Because it's immensely axiomatic that coal is extremely harmful to our fragile atmosphere. We think it's not ok to burn coal in home ranges, but ok on a commercial scale? Ridiculous.
