Transforming towards energy democracies
This webinar by the Transnational Institute (TNI) & Friends of the Earth Europe (FoEE) and in collaboration with Transformative Cities coalition, focuses on the following transformative energy proposals and practices - from the local, regional & national level.

Eskom Transformed – South Africa: This proposal, driven by civil society and trade unions, is about transforming South Africa’s electricity utility, Eskom, into a ‘New Eskom’ that is fully public and people serving by securing a democratic and just energy transition and fulfilling the promise of socially owned renewable energy. aidc.org.za/eskom-transformed-full-report/

Morwell – Australia: For 22 years Earthworker Cooperative has brought the environment/climate movement together with the labour movement to build cooperatives that enable communities to find ways out of the climate emergency. Today it successfully runs manufacturing and other energy, water, transport, and land care cooperatives. transformativecities.org/atlas/atlas-36/

Walhi, Friends of the Earth – Indonesia: We fight with communities against harmful coal power and big hydro. Our vision for energy democracy and people's sovereignty is rural and forest dependent communities should be able to manage forests as well as water for small scale hydro themselves. http://walhi.or.id/index.php/urging-for-a-just-and-sovereign-energy-transition-for-climate-justice-report/

We have been organising webinars for the international Energy Democracy alliance. Connecting over 390 groups and persons around the world via a mailing list to exchange ideas and materials to advance the struggle for a just transition towards energy democracy: energy-democracy.net

Transformative Cities is a chance for progressive local governments, municipal coalitions, social movements and civil society organisations to popularise and share their experiences of building solutions to our planet’s systemic economic, social, political and ecological crises: transformativecities.org
