Energy from the sun, wind and water can cut greenhouse pollution and provide clean, abundant energy for all. But coal, oil and gas companies continue to block the transition to renewable energy and the action needed to solve the climate crisis. Throughout history, everyday people have stood up to vested interests to achieve change that was thought to be impossible. We can do it again…
Driven by the imperative of climate justice, The Sunrise Project’s mission is to scale social movements to drive the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy as fast as possible.
What we do
We are passionate about driving the transition from polluting fossil fuels to clean, renewable energy to reduce greenhouse pollution and create a healthy and prosperous future for everyone. We believe that solving complex problems like the climate crisis requires a network of people and organisations acting together to have a much bigger impact than any one organisation could have alone.
We’ve developed a unique model for making a difference that sits on the boundary of philanthropy and social movements. Essentially, we do three things:
- Research and analysis to develop evidence-based strategies to achieve our mission;
- Work with funders, foundations and philanthropists to align resources and re-grant funds to other organisations;
- Convene, connect and support collaborations to cut greenhouse pollution and drive the transition to clean energy.
