Student action results in Sustainable Development success. A three-month campaign by Laval University student activist group “ULaval sans fossiles” helped persuade Laval U to stop investing in fossil fuels. In a February 15, 2017 press release, Quebec City’s Laval University committed to “taking responsible action to switch its endowment fund investments in fossil energy to other types of investments, such as renewable energy.” ULaval sans fossiles organizer Alice-Anne Simard describes her group’s winning campaign, and offers suggestions for other student activist groups, in a February 20 article on Ricochet Media.
