Divest Phillips Exeter Academy from Fossil Fuels

This petition had 138 supporters

We, the alumni of Phillips Exeter Academy, ask the trustees of the Academy’s Endowment to divest from fossil fuels. Climate change is a great threat to human existence, and it is our responsibility as a leader among global secondary school institutions to take a stand in helping the environment. In order for the Academy to continue developing appropriately to its times and live by it’s motto non-sibi, it is necessary to transition from investing in businesses that are harming the environment to sustainable options. This shift eventually will have to occur, for the fossil fuel industry is becoming obsolete and the repercussions of human emissions become more threatening. For future generations to continue learning, thriving and inventing we must ensure they will have a healthy planet to live on. Please join us in calling upon the trustees of the Phillips Exeter Academy’s Endowment to Divest from fossil fuels.
