High rates of growth in natural gas prices, high level of energy resource consumption, increase in the share of energy consumption in production costs, low fuel efficiency and significant emissions of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere – it all leads to finding alternative sources of energy, energy efficiency or developing methods of energy efficiency.

Energy is everywhere around us and our life depends on it. Many people do really think that sources of energy on our planet are eternal, so we can keep calm and use as much energy as we can.

Using sustainable energy is global problem, but in my opinion we can start solving it on local level.

The population’s average age is as low as 20 years - typical for a threshold country – and you can feel this fact in the country’s potential and in the urge for action that can be sensed in every corner of the country.
Pakistan’s economy is not in perfect shape, but it’s rapidly growing and securing the country a place in the so called 'next eleven' club, which marks the nations with high chances of becoming the big players of the 21 century.

Most of the Uranium produced in Niger is exported to France in order to sustain France’s electricity production. Whereas France enjoys electricity, local communities in Arlit and Akokan suffer from pollution, unemployment, health issues and sub-standard or non-existent education.
