Fossil Free Lakehead

Name Fossil Free Lakehead (FFL)
Type Club
Campus Thunder Bay
Purpose Fossil Free Lakehead is a student group advocating for Lakehead University to divest from the fossil fuel industry. Divestment is the opposite of investing, used to remove financial support from an industry. Divestment from fossil fuels aids in keeping reserves in the ground and promoting a shift in politics to demand more sources of renewable energy. It is a tactic that levels the playing field for green energy initiatives and signals investors to reflect the transformation in our economy that is needed to provide real climate change solutions. The goal of divestment is not to directly impact the ability of fossil fuel companies’ to operate. Instead, it sends a loud and clear message that the age of fossil fuels is over, and it works to help speed the transition away from it — a transition that is entirely possible, but requires real action to be effective.
