Required Viewing: Middlebury Divestment Panel Viewing Guide

It's not really required viewing, but I highly suggest this watching this. In January, Middlebury College hosted a panel discussion on divestment that included Bill McKibben, the college’s Chief Financial Officer, President of their endowment manager, Investure, and other professionals and campus stakeholders. The panel was broadcast live online, but with Board of Trustees meetings season upon us we thought we would take it off the resource shelf to share. It covers many of the common arguments made for and against fossil fuel divestment. The perspectives shared by the panelist are beneficial in knowing what types of questions you may encounter in discussing divestment with campus administrators.  If you don’t have a full two hours to watch the panel, no worries, I created a handy viewing guide with a summary of key points and timestamps. If you can’t get enough and are looking for the play by play I’m happy to share the 10 pages of notes I took! Feel free to email me at reagan@endowmentsethics.org.
