Shine - Investing in Energy Access for All

Wednesday, April 5th: 13:30 - 14:45 - Mezzanine

HOST: Wallace Global Fund, GreenFaith and SEforALL


When world leaders signed the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Agreement, they committed to an energy transition from fossil fuels to clean and renewable solutions. However, their commitments to date have failed to prioritize the most vulnerable communities. Shine is an emerging, independent global campaign dedicated to ending energy poverty and unlocking new opportunities for billions of people. Partners from the faith, development, and philanthropic sectors are generating momentum to achieve universal access to clean, affordable, and reliable energy by 2030. Participants will learn about Shine's strategy and approach, and how they can become involved.
