Camapign Update

The campaign has been successful in getting the required signatures for their petition and is now a ratified KCLSU campaign! The petition is still collecting signatures so make sure to show your support for the cause.

Fossil Free Careers is campaigning to stop our university careers service from putting KCL students into oil, gas, and mining industries. We want KCL to take responsibility for building the sustainable, ethical workforce we need to transition to a just and equitable energy system and low-carbon economy, supporting King’s students in finding ethical careers.


Campaign goals:

  • To provide public support for the Fossil Free Careers campaign, and for the career’s department to:

1. Refuse all new relationships with oil, gas or mining companies

2. Decline to renew any current relationships with oil, gas or mining companies after the contractually obligated period ends.

3. Adopt a publicly available Ethical Careers Policy that explicitly excludes oil, gas and mining companies from recruitment opportunities


Campaign Development
