Many of us know what a sustainable food system would look like. It would be local, fueled by renewable energy, based on regenerative agriculture, and produce enough to keep communities healthy without egregious waste. Join us to discuss best practices, key leverage points, and individual actions that will help actualize sustainable food systems that can operate effectively and efficiently without fossil fuels.
It’s time to put the power back in the hands of those that own our rural electric cooperatives–the member-owners.
A special report from the Frontlines in collaboration with our members from Puerto Rico
The workshop series brings together community leaders and organizers from across New York City to learn about pressing economic justice issues and explore strategies for change. Sessions focus on building a just economy rooted in equity, cooperation, community self-determination, racial, gender, and economic justice, and ecological sustainability.
This report shares proven actions and campaigns that can be run by those with limited resources who want maximum impact reducing the footprint of food, housing, mobility.
In this forum participants will explore how to achieve common global objectives (Sustainable Development Goals and climate change goals) from a local perspective and through social innovation.
This course will run from January 10th through February 28th, 2019.
This short pamphlet has been produced to launch the New Economics Foundation’s new programme of work on the 'just transition'. Our interest is in the practicality of change: the policies, processes, narrative and investment needed to accelerate the UK’s progress on 'just transition', here and now. Over the coming months and years we will be working at local and national levels to explore what is needed to build common cause and provide the right mixture of incentives and critical challenge to all parties to help unlock a new momentum for a 'just transition' for the UK.

Energy Democracy is a policy framework with the goal of transforming neglected and isolated communities—often poor, and often communities of color—into energy producers who contribute to the nation’s overall capacity, add clean energy to the grid, enhance their economic and political ties across the region, and supply their own energy needs. Without intervention, communities of color risk missing a transformative opportunity for a meaningful role in America’s changing energy economy. With people of color fast becoming half of the national population, this would be a loss for both communities of color and the nation. This white paper explores the challenges and opportunities communities of color face as participants in a renewable energy economy. With the right ownership models, clear and supportive tax incentives and finance policy, reformed land use and zoning policies, and equitable access to the grid, emerging technology allows communities of color to establish themselves as power producers. This white paper is focused on communityowned, small-scale renewable generators in electricity markets. Communities of color that become energy producers will transform their relationships with the larger regional economy, bringing improved infrastructure, increased wealth, and greater political interdependence between communities of color and their neighbors.
