Urge UCT to take decisive action on climate change before it's too late.

To be heroic in this drastic climate change, institutions should shift their investments into keeping the Earth green and Glaciers frozen. So the SSC & GCI is therefore pleading with Africa’s best University to lead the way in doing the following:

• Divert R300 million, which is believed to be less than 5% of the Endowment, to seed-fund a new fossil-free and socially responsible investment fund as the first step towards total divestment over five years.
• Write to the other leading SA universities with endowments, as well as leading philanthropies and retirement funds, asking them to partner in seed-funding further fossil- free and socially responsible investments funds to help kickstart a truly climate- responsible and ethical investment sector in South Africa.

Money donated does not go towards the cause but rather goes to Change.org which is not the intention of the petition and is discouraged. Therefore, after signing the petition, please ignore the option to donate.
