Event Details

Hundreds of people across the UK are taking action on the 24th March 2023 to demand their local government pension funds divest from crisis and invest in our future.

Join us on the 15th February to find out why, and how you can get involved.


In the last year we have sat in the cold, unable to afford to heat our homes and watched in horror as the climate crisis intensified, with floods tearing through Pakistan, drought devastating the Horn of Africa and storms surging through the US, Japan and Mauritius.

The spiralling cost of living and the breakdown of the global climate are both symptoms of an unstable and unjust energy system, founded on fossil fuels.

This is one crisis; a fossil fuel crisis.

Investing in fossil fuels won’t keep us warm this winter – Investment in a sustainable future has never been more urgent.

Despite more than 75% of councils declaring a climate emergency, UK local authority pension funds pump over £10bn into highly polluting fossil fuels.

On Friday 24 March 2023, people across the UK will come together in town and city centres to demand our local institutions finally cut off the money pipeline to fossil fuel polluters and free up funds to invest in clean, cheap energy.

Will you join them?

Event details

At the event you’ll hear from organisers from UK Divest, from people organising a demonstration in their area and from an expert on the cost of living and climate crisis. We’ll see you there!
