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.
Real commitment to fight climate change requires an internal journey and reaching the understanding of what each of us can do with our unique way of being. Sharing experiences of activism with others can help unlocking this process and connect the dots between personal commitment and its systemic repercussions. Madalena Meneses in this blog shares her experience at the international Agora of volunteers organized by the Campaign “Change for the Planet- Care for the People” on the sidelines of the climate change conference COP 24.
