Director Foundation, Energy
How do we grow and spread (campaign) ideas - virtually and across the globe- which are worth spreading?
I am presently leading a campaign: EnergyForOneWorld.
This campaign is a direct result of a think-tank on the present world energy situation- right now.
The goals and purpose is to raise our common awareness that all nations and all people have a fundamental right for energy.
We all are in need of food, water, shelter, peace, jobs and a bit of prosperity and happiness.
To achieve these fundamental needs, we do need energy.
In order to supply the worlds growing population with those needs , we do have to smarten- up our mutual collaboration, sharing and energy system innovation.
We need: 1. New rules of engagement and organizational oversight. We need the establishment of a World Energy Council at the UN or at another authorized institution. 2. Energy transition management in the various developed and developing regions, countries, cities. 3. Roll-out of sustainable energy to the emerging and poor countries, a World Energy Programme (much like the World Food Programme)
Our campaign is focused to inspire government-, business, world organization-, science- and community leaders to step-up on their leadership and to work more collaboratively towards:
Our aim is further to raise the public awareness on the global issues and opportunities at hand.
Energy for One World- reliable, sustainable and in harmony.
Suggestions and help is needed!
