Fossil Free Melbourne University

Did you know that Melbourne University is investing in fossil fuels? By continuing to support this reckless industry, the University is profiting at the expense of its students and their futures.

It’s time for Melbourne University to show its true commitment to sustainability, and join the world movement towards a prosperous low-carbon economy.

Our Mission

We are a group of students and alumni committed to seeing the University of Melbourne stop investing in the top 200 coal, oil and gas companies. These are the companies most responsible for blocking action on climate change. Until we can reduce the stranglehold they have over our political system, we will not see the change we need. 

Divestment aims to reduce the social license of the fossil fuels industry, loosening the grip it has over our political system and allowing for climate legislation that is in line with the science.



Fossil Free Melbourne University acknowledge that as an organisation we meet and work on the land of the Wurundjeri in the Kulin nations. We pay respect to their Elders past and present, and acknowledge the pivotal role that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people continue to play within the Australian community.
