Green Zone, Climate Generations Area, COP21 site, Le Bourget
Jeremy Leggett, solar industry pioneer and Carbon Tracker’s Chairman, will be speaking at Momentum for divestment. Organised by 350.org, the event will feature speakers from across the global divestment movement who will speak about the growing momentum for change.
In just the last year, the movement has seen a 50-fold increase in the amount of money under management (now over $2.6 trillion) that is committed to some form of divestment. Together, institutions are modelling what we need to see from governments: clear commitments to move money out of fossil fuels and into climate solutions. Speakers will include representatives from faith groups, cities, universities, foundations, and more.
This event does not require COP21 accreditation.
