SustainableEnergy actively influences all spheres of society to gradually adjust towards becoming fully sustainable where public involvement and initiatives are respected and democratic principles promoted.

Increasingly the climate change agenda influences the work of SustainableEnergy combining it with energy and resource management. A fundamental principle of SustainableEnergy’s work for a sustainable society in Denmark as well as abroad is that this cannot be achieved by only applying a set of appropriate technological innovations. The transformation towards societies based on renewable energy sources must be built around local democracy processes, deep rooted community ownership and a strong public participation.

Our points of departure when engaging with international development assistance are found within the environment and renewable energy sectors. Within these two sectors on-going climate changes and their impacts on already vulnerable communities and local authorities will form the back-drop of all programming and used as a leverage to work with local governance and democracy challenges.

SustainableEnergy is engaged in both rural and urban areas. Intervention in rural areas within for instance sustainable natural resource management cannot ignore increasing demands for fuel wood and charcoal from underprivileged populations in the cities. The continued fast growth of the urban population and following expanding environmental problems therefore indirectly impacts surrounding rural areas and livelihood opportunities there. In several of SustainableEnergy’s target areas placed in the proximity to urban centres rural farmland and its natural resources is under immense pressure.
