The final stages of internationally-renowned arts festival Fringe World’s separation from their former major sponsor Woodside are now in place, and the requisite debate over the ethics of the decision is front-and-centre.

The decision will mean the festival goes into the 2024 season with no fossil fuel sponsors.

Artist and Fossil Free Arts campaigner Noemie Huttner-Koros told Sean Cowan on 6PR Mornings she had heard all of the arguments against climate change activism in business, but has not been convinced otherwise.

“I’ve seen the way that fossil fuel companies have continuously undermined climate action at every single level; they do this by getting their name out there and, and and having a social licence to continue to pollute,” Ms Huttner-Koros said.
