Our team is about to hit Rocking the Daisies, and this is what we’ll be asking festival-goers to do for the divestment cause – here we list five quick ways you can take action right now to push South Africa towards a more safe and prosperous future and away from the deadly fossil fuels – coal, oil and gas – that threaten our climate, our health and our savings.
HOW MANY ACTIONS CAN YOU TICK OFF?
Five quick and easy divestment actions (1–2 minutes)
Please work your way through this list of fast, easy actions.
