Sustainable Energy for All Forum

United Nations Headquarters, New York, 4-6 June 2014
By June 2014, two years will have passed since Rio+20, where world leaders declared: “we are all determined to act to make sustainable energy for all a reality and, through this, help to eradicate poverty and lead to sustainable development and global prosperity.” To mark this milestone and celebrate the first year of the United Nations Decade of Sustainable Energy for All (2014-2024), the Sustainable Energy for All initiative is organizing the first annual Sustainable Energy for All Forum on 4-6 June 2014 at
UN Headquarters in New York.
The Forum will assess progress on sustainable energy since Rio, showcase success, share best practices, present new commitments, catalyze action and help shape the global energy debate for the next decade.
Join us to help lift the dialogue on sustainable energy to the level it deserves, and put the world on a path to achieve Sustainable Energy for All’s three objectives by 2030: ensuring universal access to modern energy services; doubling the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency; and doubling the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix.
All those interested in attending should apply for registration here. (

At the Forum, the United Nations Secretary-General and World Bank President will be joined by Heads of State, Ministers of foreign affairs, energy and other relevant portfolios, heads of the UN System and other international organizations, CEOs of private sector partners and leaders from broader civil society, including from the research, innovation and investment communities, as well as women’s and youth groups active on energy issues. As wide interest is expected and space is limited, early application for registration before 2 May is encouraged. There is no charge to attend but registration is limited.
