Archive : Fossil Free Suffolk


Did you know that Suffolk County Council has an estimated £117million of public money (pension funds) invested in environmentally unsound, and financially risky Fossil Fuel companies? Here in Suffolk we pride ourselves on aiming to be the UK's Greenest County, so lets REALLY act like we mean it, and remove public funds from companies that value profit over the sustainability of our planet, investing instead in renewable energy and new homes. Hundreds have already signed our petition to ask Suffolk County Council to rid its pension scheme of fossil-fuel companies. Now we want to launch the petition with a bang, with the screening of an inspirational film "Do the Math" and an afternoon of entertainment. Doors open at 1.15pm and the event starts at 1.30pm featuring live music, DJ's, poetry, storytelling, inspirational speakers, a film screening, and affordable, homemade food and drink.
