Each year, The Scottish Green Energy Awards raises thousands of pounds for charities that are helping people through the provision of renewable energy.
This year, the event will once again support Renewable World and Scotland Lights Up Malawi.
Scotland Lights Up Malawi
The Scotland Lights up Malawi campaign is raising funds in order to address climate justice by investing in solar lights in Malawi.
Climate justice is global justice for those people vulnerable to the impacts of climate change who are usually forgotten - the poor, the disempowered and the marginalised across the world. The concept is that those who have benefited from emitting carbon and burning fossil fuels assist those whose lives are affected by the changing climate.
Money raised will help our partner SolarAid change lives across Malawi by providing access to safe, clean lights for the first time, supporting the eradication of the kerosene lamp.
By supporting such work you will help support the charities' efforts in combating climate change and by bringing light to some of the 15 million Malawians still without electricity.
If you would like to stay in touch with the project visit our website or get in touch with Ruth Milliken on firstname.lastname@example.org.
A video about the work of SolarAid can be seen below.
Working towards a world where renewable energy is readily accessible to all, helping to end extreme poverty and reduce climate change.
Many of us take access to energy for granted, yet around the world 1 in 9 people still lack access to electricity; 1 in 3 people lack access to clean cooking; and 1 in 10 people lack access to clean water.
At Renewable World, we believe that every person deserves the right to determine their own future, and access to energy and a clean environment makes this possible. That is why our work is focused on developing and deploying effective solutions that bring renewable energy to scale for poor communities, (em)powering them to achieve sustainable and resilient livelihoods.
Thank you for your support and for helping us (em)power communities forward, creating brighter futures in Nepal and Kenya.
We are proud of the support that Scottish Renewables and the Scottish renewable energy industry gives us. For more information on how to get involved, follow us on Facebook, Twitter or sign up to our newsletter here. Thank you.
