Fossil Free PSU is a multifaceted entity. It is a recognized student organization, a diverse coalition of partner organizations and individuals, and a campaign for fossil fuel divestment at Penn State. Our campaign is but one chapter of the larger, nationwide fossil fuel divestment movement, coordinated by 350.org.
Fossil Free PSU was founded in the Spring 2014 semester at Penn State's University Park campus. Our work includes, but is not limited to, spreading awareness of fossil fuel divestment through various mediums, collaborating with students, faculty, and other groups, garnering petition signatures, and organizing events.
Our campaign necessitates expertise in communications, organization, multimedia, research, finance, digital media, art/graphic design, knowledge and/or interest in environmental issues, and much more. In other words, everybody can be an asset to our group in one way or another, and we are always looking for new members! Interested in joining us?
