As Friends of the Earth’s renewable energy coordinator, I’m responsible for devising campaigns that defend renewable energy or accelerate the rollout of the tech. Our current practice blends political strategy, media strategy and community organising. Yes 2 Renewables (Y2R) is Friends of the Earth Melbourne’s campaign for 100 percent renewable energy. Y2R empowers communities to win local campaigns that accelerate the transition to 100 percent renewable energy. The campaign works in partnership with community group and engages with workers, businesses and other stakeholders.
