ENERGY IS A HUMAN RIGHT
Access to energy is foundational to achieving a broad range of basic human rights and all of the Millennium Development Goals. SELF’s ENERGY IS A HUMAN RIGHT™ campaign provides a voice to the 1.5 billion people around the world living without access to modern energy services and calls upon everyone to join the campaign to show support for those living in energy poverty.
Energy is a cornerstone of human development. Without it, our lives would be dramatically different – we couldn’t light our homes, access clean water, provide quality health care, operate machinery, or use technology to instantly communicate with the world. For many of us it’s hard to imagine such a life, but that is the reality for 1.5 billion people on the planet. It’s time to declare energy a human right.
