Students Lead Change for Environmentally Friendly Endowments

Mar 29, 2013 01:09PM

Christopher Round of Divest Harvard, in Cambridge, joins college students from more than 200 campuses across the country in urging schools to divest from fossil fuels in their endowments. “If it’s wrong to wreck the planet, then it is wrong to profit from it,” says Round, noting that the movement has already seen four schools divest. “Last fall Divest Harvard won student support by more than 72 percent in a campus-wide vote, and our work has been recognized by such leaders as Al Gore and Jon Huntsman, who applaud our efforts and commend us for standing up for what we believe in.”
