            Great to see students of institutions of higher learning taking responsibility to take care of the environment, this is a great step especially bearing in mind that most of the students are the youth and the youth is the future.

              It's great to see more UK universities taking a stand against the fossil fuel industry and prioritizing sustainability. This move can inspire other institutions to follow suit and accelerate the transition to a greener future.

                      @gorffly_mokua Being institutions of higher learning, they are an example to their students and the community too.

                      This highlights a positive trend as an increasing number of UK universities, now 72%, are responding to student campaigns and committing to divest from the fossil fuel industry. This shift aligns with broader efforts to address climate change within the higher education sector
