Podcast: Fossil Free Now Ep 1 – A New Strategy

Ben Wray

Episode 1 of Fossil Free Now explores the experience of divestment activists in their attempts to engage with councillors

FOSSIL FREE NOW follows the campaign of Fossil Free Glasgow, a group of volunteers organising for the Glasgow City council to renounce to its investments in the fossil fuel industry.

This podcast series will discuss the blocks in our current systems that prevent us from meaningfully addressing the threat of climate breakdown, but also what a society freed from fossil fuels would look like.

This episode introduces the Fossil Free Glasgow campaign, the obstacles that the group has come across during three years of pressuring the Glasgow City Council to divest £803 million from fossil fuels, and what they hope to achieve with the launch of this new podcast.
