However, they are underrepresented at all decision-making levels, especially when it comes to participation and co-determination in managing resources.

The way people produce and access energy is a crucial aspect of our lives, because energy is essential to our well-being, and simultaneously we must avert climate change to save life on earth. The documentary ‘Energy to Change’ follows six stories of the personal energy choices of communities and people across the world. From riding bicycles to defending the Amazon from hydropower dams, from schools and clinics in the desert powered by solar panels to energetic conversion of buildings, these heroes are doing their part for an energy transition that respects the needs of people and the planet.
