Is your organization or community interested in moving your money out of coal, oil and gas exploration, extraction and infrastructure but it all seems too complicated? Thea Ormerod, Chair of The Australian Religious Response to Climate Change (ARRCC) invites you to a webinar on divesting from fossil fuels on 15 May 2014, Thursday with the help of accredited financial adviser Karen McLeod.

Here’s an opportunity you may be interested in joining online, in the comfort of your office or home! 350.org and the Australian Religious Response to Climate Change (ARRCC) are hosting webinars on divesting from fossil fuels with the help of accredited financial adviser Karen McLeod.

Thursday, May 15th at 2 – 3 pm or 7.30 – 8.30 pm (Eastern Standard Time)

Is your organization or community interested in moving your money out of coal, oil and gas exploration, extraction and infrastructure but you’re discovering it’s complex? Maybe you’re finding that some of the companies investing in fossil fuels are also big investors in renewable energy. Or it’s hard to find socially responsible alternatives because so much of the ASX200 is tied up in fossil fuels. Perhaps you are concerned about the loss of jobs in mining that divestment might cause. Perhaps you’re uncertain that you would be fulfilling your fiduciary duty if you went down the divestment path.

We know how busy you are, so we’ve set this up so you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your office – just join in on your computer and ask your questions.

To register, send your details to Thea Ormerod at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and you will receive details of how to participate closer to the time. You can also call on 02 9150 9713 or 0405 293 466
