Science Museum boycott

News in Brief

Over 400 teachers have said they will not be taking their students to a new gallery at London’s Science Museum if it continues to be sponsored by the massive coal company, Adani, and they will boycott any exhibitions sponsored by fossil fuel companies.

Currently, the Science Museum is sponsored by oil and gas giants Shell, BP and Equinor as well as by Adani.

Fossil Free Science Museum, which organised the open letter, says: ‘These companies are pushing the world further towards dangerous climate disaster, and destroying the lands and livelihoods of frontline and Indigenous communities.’
