The Executive Committee of Global 100% RE is pleased to invite you to attend the launch event of the Global 100% Renewable Energy Platform, taking place at Gustav-Stresemann-Institute in Bonn, Germany, on 8 May 2017. 

Over the course of the last couple of years the Global 100% RE Campaign has succeeded in creating a global movement for 100% Renewable Energy focusing on inclusive bottom-up processes and uniting very big, worldwide networks in the field. 

After years of functioning successfully as a network, the campaign will become a legal entity in the form of The Global 100% RE Platform. This will be a pivotal moment for accelerating the campaign's outreach and operability, as well as demonstrating our commitment to making Global 100% RE a reality. 

In addition to the official ceremony, participating organizations will present actual solutions and strategies for achieving Global 100% RE.
