Clean Energy and the Plan to Transform our World
Clean and affordable energy is vital to building sustainable communities but it does not do so in isolation. There are also local challenges: unstable jobs, rising cost of living, hunger and homelessness. An integrated plan is needed to answer the question: Energy for what? Michael and Dan explore how the development of clean and affordable energy is contributing to a global transformation. Learn about groups throughout BC who are advancing this plan for a sustainable, just, and prosperous planet.

The British Columbia Council for International Cooperation (BCCIC) is a coalition of international development and civil society organizations that has engaged in sustainable development and social justice issues for over 25 years. BCCIC acts as a liaison among different provincial and national governments on matters related to Canada’s sustainable development policy.
