The two projects both serve the cause of transitioning the world to 100 % renewable energy through democratizing our energy supply. By telling captivating stories about the heroes of everyday life who push this change forward, Energy Democracy TV and The Future of Energy want to engage and empower people to take energy back into their own hands.
The projects connected on the international crowd funding platform Indiegogo. "The Future of Energy" is finishing their campaign Tuesday, April 23, and Energy Democracy TV just launched their campaign Tuesday, April 16.
The expert knowledge of the Energy Democracy TV team united with the powers of film making, storytelling and social activism from The Future of Energy team, makes the two perfect complements to each other.
"The Future of our planet depends on the choices we as communities, and individuals make. The way we relate to each other and the planet is the foundation of our society. Distributive and renewable energy is the path towards a sustainable and harmonious future. We believe our partnership with Energy Democracy TV is based in these values." - Maximilian DeArmon, producer & writer for The Future of Energy.
"As storytellers of the new energy paradigm, we're excited to join forces with Energy Democracy TV. Kirsten's rich background in renewable energy and economics is vital to helping us present a vision that not only benefits families and communities around the world, but is in harmony with the health and vitality of our planet." - Theo Badashi, social advocate & writer for The Future of Energy.
"Before I launched my crowd funding campaign, I emphasized the importance of it being, not only about raising funds, but also about raising awareness, connecting with contributors and finding collaborators." says Kirsten Hasberg, Founder & CEO of Energy Democracy TV. "I stumbled upon The Future of Energy campaign by browsing projects with an environmental cause on Indiegogo. I supported them, then got in touch, and our cooperation quickly deepened. This is exactly what crowd funding is about!"
Kirsten Hasberg is joining "The Future of Energy" team as an Executive Producer and will provide expert advice in the field of renewable energy and help to identify pioneers in forward-thinking communities, organizations and companies that are already making the energy revolution happen. In turn, the team behind The Future of Energy is now enrolled in The Renewable Energy Online Course, provided by Energy Democracy TV, where they will gain insights about the emerging renewable energy paradigm.
Both the 'Executive Producer' role and the 'Renewable Energy Online Course' were perks that both campaigns were already offering, showcasing how social web platforms like Indiegogo can bring together teams from across the globe - The Future of Energy is based in San Francisco, California, while Energy Democracy TV is based in Berlin, Germany.
Energy Democracy TV will be published with the CR8 publishing system by Geil,Danke!
