February 2012: Join SELF’s “ENERGY IS A HUMAN RIGHT™” Campaign

SELF has launched “Energy is a Human Right,” a campaign to provide a voice to the nearly 1.5 billion people around the world living without access to modern energy services, and we need your help!

We’re calling upon our supporters, the international community and the general public to join the campaign by visiting www.EnergyIsAHumanRight.com to sign our petition to make energy a human right, support our work in the field, spread the word about the campaign via Twitter, and Facebook, and share the Energy is a Human Right icon that we hope will become a universal symbol of energy access.

For nearly 20 years, I’ve been advocating that energy is a human right, and for just as long SELF has been using solar energy to fight poverty. Too often, the role of energy has been overlooked as a critical component for sustaining and advancing people’s lives in the developing world.  Access to energy is foundational to achieving a broad range of basic human rights and all of the Millennium Development Goals.

Recently, U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon formally launched the “International Year of Sustainable Energy for All Initiative” focused on the three goals of ensuring universal access to modern energy services, doubling the rate of improvement in energy efficiency, and doubling the share of renewable energy in the global energy in the global energy mix. I am excited about this initiative and SELF looks forward to working with the U.N. to achieve its goals. But we can do more…

Supporters like you have enabled us to grow and create positive change throughout the world. Now, together, let’s make energy a human right!
