David Le Page is the co-ordinator and interim chair of Fossil Free South Africa, the South African campaign for fossil free divestment.  Fossil fuel divestment is one of six key ‘nudges’ that could tip humanity towards rapid decarbonisation.  Academics argue most responsible investment practice in SA has little substance.  Fossil Free SA want to change that with real movements of capital into robust fossil-free ESG funds.   If you want to hear more about how you can help change the way that the institutions that you are a part of contribute directly and indirectly to climate change and the ongoing validation of fossil fuel corporations, you need to listen to this episode!
