Yes2Renewables is a campaign established by Friends of the Earth Melbourne advocating for 100% renewable energy. A South Australian grassroots group is in development with the aim of defending renewable energy progress in SA (the country’s frontrunner for transitioning to 100% renewables) from fossil fuel sector attacks.
From their Mission Statement:
Yes2Renewables will be a forceful advocate for renewable energy. The campaign will build and demonstrate strong public support for renewable energy through community organising, political action, and media presence.
Y2R will empower communities to win local campaigns that accelerate the transition to 100 per cent renewable energy. The campaign will work with communities, workers, unions, businesses and other stakeholders to build a strong and diverse pro-renewable energy constituency that can’t be ignored by governments.
We stand in strong solidarity with Yes2Renewables.
