Concrete solutions for a clean future

"In China there is a 6-million migrant worker group who contracts dust lung disease--a chronic disease caused by inhaling a large amount of fine dusts over the long term which turns their LUNGS AS HARD AS STONES, leading to suffocation and undignified deaths. A clean future means a lot to them--the RIGHTS OF CLEAN BREATH is basic human rights. Let us take concrete actions, creating a clean future, SAVING LIVES of our sisters and brothers! 在中国有这样一个6百万的尘肺农民工群体——尘肺病是由于长期吸入大量细微粉尘而引起的,患者肺部会变得如石头般坚硬,他们会窒息,会毫无尊严地跪着死去。“清洁未来”对他们意义重大——清洁呼吸权是基本人权。 让我们切实行动起来,创造清洁未来,能救一个是一个!"

The Charity Fund of “Love Save Pneumoconiosis” is dedicated to helping and treating 6 million Chinese rural migrant workers suffering from DUST LUNG DISEASE, a chronic disease caused by inhaling a large amount of fine dusts over the long term which mainly results in pulmonary tissue fibrosis and makes the LUNGS to become AS HARD AS STONES. The sufferers can hardly breathe and walk around. Eventually a lot will be suffocated and die. Without social security and comprehensive assistance, they are sick, incapacitated, impoverished, lack medical assistance and feel miserable—Each one of us should take actions! Regardless of our strengths and capabilities, we will pull out all the stops and give them a helping hand. Hence here we stand. They deserve a clean future! 大爱清尘基金是专项救助中国600万尘肺病农民,并致力于推动预防和最终消灭尘肺病的公益基金。尘肺病是一种没有医疗终结的职业病,是由于长期吸入大量细微粉尘而引起的。患病后肺组织硬化、石化,导致呼吸极为困难,行动艰难,丧失劳力,大部分人最后被活活憋死。他们丧失劳力、贫病交加、缺医少药、悲苦凄惨,既无社会保障又无综合救助: 我们每一个人都理当行动起来,无论我们的力量或大或小、或多或少,我们都将竭尽全力、救命水火。这便就有了大爱清尘. 他们值得拥有一个清洁的未来!

The story of #futureisclean

Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg are attempting the first round-the-world solar flight, an adventure to promote the use of clean technologies.

Clean technologies used on the solar aircraft could be used on the ground and reduce 50% of our world’s energy consumption... as of today. But for this, we need political courage and pioneering spirit.

We launched the #futureisclean initiative to create a federation of organizations pushing the replacement of old polluting devices by existing clean technologies.

MANIFESTO: SOLVING CLIMATE CHANGE
WITH CLEAN TECHNOLOGIES

Join Bertrand Piccard’s approach to show that climate change is not an expensive problem requiring heavy financial and behavioral sacrifices, but rather a unique opportunity for profit and job creation:

Concrete solutions for a Clean Future

Just like onboard Solar Impulse, solutions already exist to reduce energy consumption. We have gathered 357 organizations around this initiative. Some of them sent the solutions they wanted to promote at COP21.


The vote is now over, here are the top 5 solutions you voted for!

Push the transition to renewable energy resources

by IRENA
The climate is changing faster than at any time in human history, due in large part to the use of fossil fuels. Transitioning rapidly to a future fuelled by renewable energy is the single most effective way to stave off catastrophic climate change. Fortunately this can be done – in fact is already being done in many countries – in a cost-neutral way using technology available today, creating on average more new jobs than those being lost in the waning fossil fuel industries. Renewable energy is good for the climate, good for the economy, and good for business.

Focus on education

by Masdar
Although we have already been able to do great things with solar power, innovative efficiency solutions and global investments, the thing that gives me most confidence is the new generation of committed experts emerging from institutions like the Masdar Institute
