The Green Economy Library

Welcome and thanks for visiting!

This library is a free, open-access tool for anyone who needs access to good quality, well-researched, comprehensive information that helps them advocate for a livable future and a just transition.

As movement builders and organizers, we know how badly the activists and campaigners in our movement need access to resources that lift the veil on false solutions, provide the facts about renewable energy, and can combat the constant spread of misinformation by the fossil fuel and nuclear industries. Our movement is at a critical juncture – we need our people to be well-versed in so much, and it’s a lot to ask. We hope that this tool will create engaging, interesting, and effective ways to learn about the complex aspects of our energy system. At the same time, we know it’s simple: Together, we can build the energy future that we dream of.

The Path to a 100% Renewable Future
