The Human Right to Renewable Energy
“All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.“ This first sentence of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights articulates a basic human commitment. Only by respecting this commitment, a humane life in peace can be assured durably. Energy is the fundamental prerequisite of every life. Availability of energy is a fundamental and indivisible human right.
