Webinar with First Fossil Fuel-Free Fund

April 9 - 10

What would “reinvestment” and the alternative to fossil fuel investment look like? Join in a unique webinar conversation with Leslie Samuelrich, the President of Green Century Capital Management —the first and only family of diversified, responsible, fossil-fuel free mutual funds.   Green Century is also unique in its ownership – having been founded in 1991 by a partnership of environmental advocacy organizations.
We’ll host two webinars to accommodate busy schedules.

We will be joined by the director of Environment America’s global warming program, Julian Boggs, in facilitating a call for student/youth activists working in divestment. We’ll discuss the realities of fossil-fuel free investment, the strengths and limitations of shareholder advocacy and the ways in which investors have been able to take more active roles in supporting families on the frontlines of fossil fuel extraction.  Come ready with your thoughts and questions!
Please share this invitation with students you think would be interested in joining the conversation.
