With a renewable energy boom beginning and carbon pricing now coming into its own, we’ll travel across the country to meet some of the incredible activists behind this shift, from former oil sands workers turning to solar to everyday citizens choosing electric vehicles.

      In a nation comprised of over 17,000 islands, fossil fuel energy isn’t just dirty and expensive – often requiring extensive infrastructure to reach remote communities – it can be deeply impractical. In contrast, renewables like wind and solar offer many island communities the chance to generate affordable energy locally and finally bring electricity to villages long without it.

      In this hour, we’ll explore how leaders in Indonesia are increasingly turning to clean energy as a path to leapfrog fossil fuels and modernize communities, with islands like Sumba leading the way.

    About

    • We are at an important moment in the climate movement. As the first truly global accord, the Paris Agreement was monumental. And yet with it came numerous questions about how each nation – and each of us individually – can create the continued change that is required. The inflection point at hand is about the transition from debate and denial, to action and sustainable growth for all.  
    • The Climate Reality Project is devoted to powering the social revolution for climate action. Founded by Nobel Laureate Al Gore, the millions strong organization stands up to climate denial and spreads the truth about the climate crisis to empower our leaders to take action.
