Judge 1: The proposal outlines the plan of divesting from fossil fuel companies as institutions (universities, government pensions, churches, etc.) and as individuals as a way to shift the fossil fuel industry away from using all of the resources it plans to.The plan has the potential for major change in that it focuses on challenging a major source of power, investments in fossil fuels, as the center of organizing individuals and institutions. The plan has already made progress in some institutions. The method for organizing to divest is not as explicit in the proposal as it could be, but the focus and theory of change are very clear and persuasive.
Judge 2: This proposal looks like what 350.org is doing. What will these proposers do that is any different? And how will they accomplish their goal of getting institutions to divest. I am missing something here.
Fellows: How does your proposal differ from and complement other work in the divestment movement?
