Our universities directly profit from violence against migrating people through investments in the companies that enthusiastically make border injustices possible. We want to build a world free from borders, and as a first step we are demanding that our universities divest from the border industry.
University Careers Departments are actively promoting careers in the oil, gas, and mining industries. They are propping up the industries most responsible for the climate and ecological crisis. People & Planet are campaigning to end this recruitment pipeline, and to build a just and liveable world for all.
The fossil fuel industry is unequivocally driving us towards a global climate crisis: we will not keep dangerous climate change at bay without halting our extraction of fossil-fuels. People & Planet is calling on universities to move their money from fossil fuel investments to green energy; to stop the greenwash and to support a clean energy future for all.
The only league table of UK universities focussing on sustainability and transparency. The People & Planet University League has driven massive improvements in environmental management and monitoring in its 12 year lifetime. Students want and expect their universities to be taking responsibility for a sustainable future and keeping warming below 2°C.
It is wrong to criminalise the movement of vulnerable people. Especially when their displacement is the result of our global political and economic system. We are a student movement fighting for the full political, social and economic rights of all migrants, and for a borderless world.
