The Fossil Free UCT campaign

The Fossil Free UCT campaign was the founding campaign of Fossil Free SA. We continue to make divestment by Africa’s leading university from the fossil fuels that are so deadly to Africans a key priority in our work.

Take action

  • Sign on to our March 2020 letter to the UCT Joint Investment Committee requesting it to implement the two votes of Convocation that call for the university to divest.
  • Sign our long-standing UCT divestment petition to get updates on our planned programme of action this year.
  • Join our WhatsApp campaign news group.
  • Look out for news of our planned peaceful protests.

Get the background

  • Read the tragically long background to this campaign.
  • Read and forward the pamphlet we circulated at the inauguration of the new UCT Chancellor in March 2020.
