Fossil Free uOttawa is a campaign which is working to get the University of Ottawa to divest from fossil fuel companies. Divestment is the opposite of investment – the removal of investments from stocks, bonds, or funds. Fossil Fuel divestment specifically is asking institutions to move their money out of oil, coal, and gas companies for both moral and financial reasons.
The GSAÉD supports this cause and works on this campaign in partnership with other uOttawa campus actors.
