With climate change, and fossil-fuel divestment, in the news both locally and globally recently, we thought it was time to be 'a prophetic voice to the churches' (one of the five major roles of Christians on the Left) on these issues.

Hosted by Jonny Hanson our panel discussion will feature:
- Economist Tony Weekes, former board member of the Ecology Building Society
- Anne Ford of NI Community Energy and Drumlin Wind Co-op
- Bertie Stirling of A Rocha
- David Woods of Oikocredit

We'll be making the case for divestment, highlighting sustainable alternatives for churches to put their money into, and asking how do we all work together to make this happen?

All welcome regardless of religious or political affiliation.

Too far for me to attend the panel discussion but what an interesting event on a crucial topic.
Sadly the CofE has tried to kick the divestment issue into the long grass for a few years. It is difficult not to derive some pleasure from the financial losses they have experienced by retaining most of their fossil fuel investments.
Still waiting for the Labour Party to develop some sensible policies on the transition from fossil fuels. Think of those Green voters who just need a nudge to become Labour voters. Banning fracking and unconventional gas would attract plenty of middle England Tories too.
