Can you email this campaign to 10 colleagues or friends who are UniSuper members?
We know this campaign can’t stop with a few thousand signatures on an open letter. We need to escalate this campaign to make sure our UniSuper divestment call becomes irresistible. So here are some ways you can help do just that.
Activities to bring the campaign to life
If we’re going to get a fossil fuel divestment policy out of UniSuper’s board, we need to take this campaign out of the digital world, onto campuses and right to the doors of UniSuper offices. Please head to this page and complete the form to register your interest in organising collaborative activities to help bring this campaign to life.
As informed and passionate UniSuper members, you are the best possible advocates for this campaign. Are you able to write, publish and share an opinion piece explaining why UniSuper needs to divest from companies that are undermining the Paris Agreement’s goals and encouraging others to join the campaign?
It will be incredibly powerful to see opinion pieces published everywhere from personal blogs, to university magazines and websites, and right up to The Conversation and mainstream media outlets. When your piece is published, please let us know by emailing the link to [email protected], and sharing on social media with the hashtag #UniSuperDIVEST. We can then promote these pieces through our own social media channels. We can also help with drafting and pitching pieces.
Add your face and voice
We want to represent the many UniSuper members that have joined this campaign by publishing some graphics on the site and on social media. If you would like to be one of these featured members, please email us at [email protected] with a photo of yourself and a short quote (<20 words) summing up why you have joined. Check out an example here.
Spread the word
Of course, the easiest way you can help build this campaign is to share it as widely as possible with fellow UniSuper members. Let’s push the open letter signatory numbers beyond our next milestone of 10,000 ASAP.
Use the buttons at the top of this page to share the campaign via social media and email. Be sure to write your own message explaining your reasons for joining and encouraging your fellow members to get on board.
You can also promote the campaign by printing and distributing these campaign materials around your workplace, or handing smaller versions out as flyers.
