Divestment Meme Party

Thursday, February 27, 2014 - 8:00pm

Hart House Debates Room

Come support Toronto350.org's campaign for fossil fuel divestment at U of T at our *OFFICIAL LAUNCH PARTY* on Feb 27 and be a part of the growing movement to SOLVE THE CLIMATE CRISIS!!!

Currently, the University of Toronto has hundreds of millions of dollars invested in an industry that is becoming more socially, environmentally and financially unsustainable with each passing day.

With atmospheric CO2 levels ALREADY 15% ABOVE what the United Nations has declared safe - and fossil fuel companies containing 5 TIMES THE AMOUNT OF FOSSIL FUEL RESERVES THAN CAN BE SAFELY BURNED - the time to start reducing our reliance on carbon-based energy is NOW.

Toronto350.org, along with nearly 1500 members of the U of T community, including dozens of student organizations, professors, students, staff and alumni, is getting ready to present its case to the U of T administration - and we need YOUR SUPPORT!

Come out to the DMP and enjoy some free food and drinks, live music and the opportunity to design your own meme art along the theme of CLIMATE ACTION. The funniest meme wins a prize!

Don't miss this exciting opportunity to learn more about fossil fuel divestment at U of T, meet your campus environmental activists and join the global movement to prevent the catastrophic effects of unmitigated climate change!
