Green Groups

EDINBURGH, UK - On Tuesday 26 May, in a big step forward for student campaigners, the University of Edinburgh announced its intention to divest from coal and tar sands within the next 6 months. The news represents a significant shift in the university's position, after it announced on Tuesday 12 May that it would not divest from fossil fuels, sparking a student occupation of a university management building which lasted for more than 10 days.
