The University of Winnipeg Students’ Association says that it will continue to fight for a full divestment from fossil fuels following a recent UWinnipeg board decision that stopped short of such a move. On Monday night, the school’s board approved the creation of a green fund that will support investments in renewable energy. The university has said that the policy is similar to that adopted by other schools. Students’ Association Environmental Ethics Director Avery Letkemann, however, says that nothing short of full divestment is acceptable. “I do not accept this as the final decision,” she said. “We’re not giving up. Divestment is never going to go away. The campaign will never go away.”
