Divest the Hebrew University from Fossil Fuels

Divest the Hebrew University from Fossil Fuels

To divest the Hebrew University's holding from fossil fuels within 5 years and to establish a committee that will supervise the procedure and make sure that the fossil free policy is being kept.

Why is this important?

We need to take responsability on the future of our life in this country (Israel) and on this planet. We cannot continue with the current energy policy and use fossil fuels as if there's no climate change and there's no limits of use of this resource. We must divest, not only for the future but also for the present. People all over the world and also here, in Israel, are damaged severely by the pollution that is caused by the methods of energy production from fossil fuels. The Hebrew Uni. claims to be the leading University in Israel, it is time for the University to take a stand and join the movement.
