2012 is the UN International Year of Sustainable Energy for All and the Secretary General will launch a goal of sustainable energy for all by 2030 at Rio+20. This could be a turning point for the 3 billion energy poor, as governments, communities, non-governmental organisations and businesses work together on sustainable energy access.

Practical Action has launched the Poor people’s energy outlook 2012 to support this movement for change.

Join Practical Action and our guest speakers as we debate the goal of universal access to energy, and ask how important energy access is to people's ability to work their way out of poverty.
