On Friday 24 March 2023 we held the Divest USS: Help stop your pension fuelling climate change online forum for university staff and students as part of UK Divest’s national Day of Action. You can watch the recording here.
The event was chaired by Ellie Harrison (University of Dundee) and featured presentations about the Divest USS Report by Bill Spence (Queen Mary University), about the Save Pensions & Planet court case against USS Directors by Neil Davies (University College London) and about how students can get involved in the campaign by Nat Gorodnitski at Students Organising for Sustainability.
Summary of Actions
1. Support the Save Pensions & Planet court case against USS Directors – donate yourself, or submit a motion to your UCU branch to donate.
2. Read the Divest USS Report, share it with colleagues and ask your university management to write to USS.
3. Students – pass a motion at your university’s Finance Committee.
4. USS Members – switch to the ‘USS Ethical Equity Fund’.

The link “switch to the USS Ethical Equity Fund” seems to be broken. Any chance you could resend that?
Thank you! Best wishes Hannah
