The Green Pledge

jvyqfqmdI’ll be participating in The Green Pledge this year. That means I’ll be committing to taking three actions on climate change over the week of September 5-11.

The actions I’ll be taking are (1) divesting from my bank which invests in fossil fuels, (2) collecting signatures for the Better Buses campaign (to invest in a stronger bus network powered by renewables), and (3) writing up an academic book review of Jason W. Moore’s quite awesome exposition of world-ecology Capitalism in the Web of Life (for more on the latter see this: https://viewpointmag.com/2015/09/28/capitalism-in-the-web-of-life-an-interview-with-jason-moore/).

I’m seeking sponsorship for taking these actions to raise money for Friends of the Earth Melbourne, a grassroots environmental organisation that campaigns on climate issues.

My goal is to raise $500.

I’m also hoping to help raise awareness about the positive steps we can all take to help tackle the climate issues that we’re currently face.

If you’d like to sponsor me, please go to my profile on The Green Pledge website – it’s at https://thegreenpledge.net/bendebney

Thank you in advance!
