Oxford University is being asked to divest from fossil fuels by a growing body of students, staff and alumni. If the University sides with the fossil fuel industry and says 'no', we're looking for alumni prepared to stand up and 'hand back' their degree in protest.
This is a symbolic act - you can't actually give it back - but a powerful one.
'Handing your degree back' would involve signing up here to say you will, then, when the moment comes, we'll let you know and organise the press story of 'x' many hand back their degrees, along with manifestation of what this means - signing a letter, a photo of you handing it back / ripping it up etc.
We'll be in touch - thanks so much for your support!
