The Global Month of Action on Energy is a joint initiative of the Global Campaign to Demand Climate Justice with other networks, movements and campaigns working on energy issues.
We are calling on people, communities, organizations and movements from around the world to organize and/or join various forms of actions and initiatives that will take place within a period of 30 days to articulate and demonstrate popular opposition to dirty and harmful energy and popular demand for democratic, public renewable energy systems for people and communities.
