Declaration of Energy Democracy

Declaration of Energy Democracy

On 5 September, the Global Initiative for Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (GI-ESCR), jointly with other 17 partner organizations, launched the Declaration on Energy Democracy.

This is the result of a two-day Energy sector meeting as part of the Our Future is Public conference in Santiago, involving various organisations working towards sustainable, democratic and universal energy for all. The aim of this Manifesto is to strengthen, expand and unify the many social movements and networks committed to energy and environmental justice. This means a fundamental shift in how we understand, value, consume and manage energy.

Together we stand for:

  • Energy as a human right
  • Energy under public ownership
  • Against green colonialism
  • From profiteering to good living
  • Reducing energy consumption and energy sufficiency for all
  • Funding globally Just Energy Transitions
