The Executive Committee of Global 100% RE has recently announced the launch event of the Global 100% Renewable Energy Platform, taking place at Gustav-Stresemann-Institute in Bonn, Germany, on 8 May 2017.
Over the course of the last couple of years the Global 100% RE Campaign has succeeded in creating a global movement for 100% Renewable Energy focusing on inclusive bottom-up processes and uniting very big, worldwide networks in the field. After years of functioning successfully as a network, the campaign will become a legal entity in the form of The Global 100% RE Platform. This will be a pivotal moment for accelerating the campaign’s outreach and operability, as well as demonstrating our commitment to making Global 100% RE a reality. In addition to the official ceremony, participating organizations will present actual solutions and strategies for achieving Global 100% RE.
The event will feature video contributions by some of the world’s leading renewable energy advocates:
– Bill McKibben, Co-founder of 350.org
– Michael Brune, Executive Director of Sierra Club
– Naoto Kan, former Prime Minister of Japan
– Dipal C. Barua, Founder of Grameen Shakti
– David Suzuki, Journalist
Leading international experts in the field will provide the basis for a fruitful discussion. A detailed programme will be available on the Global 100% RE Platform website.
