What is this trip about?

We are building links with people and groups here in Australia and in Asia to promote 100% renewables.

Through these links, we can all work against exporting Australian coal.

JCJ is funding the first of Stephen’s trips to Asia. On 13th September, Stephen leaves for a week in Sri Lanka. JCJ is paying for the airfare and expenses in Sri Lanka.

Stephen is ideally placed for this initiative. He has worked on grassroots energy initiatives in the Pacific Islands and on national climate policy in Australia. As CEO of Beyond Zero Emissions, he knows the technical story on how countries can achieve 100% renewables.

JCJ is linking him with ECO-Friendly Volunteers and the Federation of Environmental Organisations in Sri Lanka. They will set up meetings with the grassroots and with influential people in business, government and NGOs.

The aim is to empower Asian countries with information to help them bring about alternatives to coal. Trips to other countries in the Asia Pacific will follow.
