One thing is clear: the era of easy oil is over. What we all do next will determine how well we meet the energy needs of the world in this century and beyond? Demand is soaring like never before. As populations grow and economies take off, millions in the developing world are enjoying the benefit of lifestyles that require increasing amounts of energy. In fact, some say that in 20 years the world will consume 40% more oil than it does today. At the same time many of the world's oil and gas fields are maturing. And new energy discoveries are mainly occurring in places where resources are difficult to extract, physically, economically and even politically. When growing demand meets tighter supply, the result is more competition for the resources.|
We can wait until a crisis forces us to do something. Or we can commit to working together, and start by asking the tough questions: How do we meet the energy needs of the developing world and those of the industrialized nations? What role will renewable and alternative energies play? What is the best way to protect our environment? How do we accelerate our conservation efforts? Whatever action we take, we must look not just to next year but to the next 50 years

His responsibility is to dream up projects and execute them in order to further this vision of a more beautiful world. Thus Bayo represents the IAL, and acts as its Special Envoy when he visits communities, and engages in talks with movements like Buen Vivir and Vikalp Sangam. Bayo is probably the most compelling speaker I have had opportunity to witness live. When DEEEP invited him to give the first keynote at our Summit in Johannesburg, Bayo's 40-minute speech (The World Alethea Dreamed of), a poetic tour de force, left us all shaken and inspired – while touching multiple stakeholder concerns. He beautifully deconstructed many of the assumptions that underline activism today, established connections where not many had even noticed them, and then with poetic effusiveness (and a touch of ambiguity!) pointed out a way 'forward'. That speech carved the path for the Johannesburg Compass. Bayo's gift is his ability to tap into the paradoxical, to transcend the apparent, and make more obvious deep linkages that broaden our horizons of what is possible. His voice will add new dimensions to the conversations on sustainable energy, climate crisis and how we can animate trans-local action towards today's crises. He is available for the dates, and has a US visa.||Adebayo Akomolafe (PhD) is a young clinical psychologist, lecturer and author from Covenant University in Nigeria. Last year, Adebayo was invited to be the Coordinator of the International Alliance for Localization, a project of Local Futures. Bayo is globally recognized for his poetic, unconventional, counterintuitive, and indigenous take on global crisis, civic action and social change, and was recently enlisted as the recipient of the Global Excellence Award (Civil Society) 2014 by FutureShapers (California). Though young, he is a frequent keynote speaker and has been invited three consecutive times to be the only keynote speaker at the European Union-sponsored DEEEP/CIVICUS Summit on Building a World Citizens' Movement. His profound contributions to the discourse on sustainability, the role of activism, climate change, poverty eradication and decolonization, led to the adoption of the Johannesburg Compass - in place of a Declaration, which had been earlier intended. As Coordinator, Bayo hopes to help co-create a trans-local 'mycelial' sharing of wisdoms, evoke a 'politics of surprise', and nurture a counterintuitive movement for a more beautiful world. He is a young man with a growing, poetic and potent voice that has captivated audiences around the world. Having co-founded a network called Koru with his life-partner, Ej, Bayo is writing his second book, ‘And We Shall Dance with the Mountains’ and a novel, ‘The Boy Who Stayed Outside’. Ej and Bayo are ecstatic parents of a girl, Alethea. His readings of 'knowledge', 'development', 'progress' and 'truth' as Eurocentric metanarratives led him to develop the first International Workshop on Alternative Research Paradigms and Indigenous Knowledge Promotion (WARP, 2011). He initiated a book project called 'We will tell our stories: Reimagining the Social Sciences in Africa' in 2011, and is currently publishing the book with Professors Molefi Asante (USA), Augustine Nwoye (South Africa) and Tsitsi Dangarembga (Zimbabwe), among other African intellectuals. He was appointed Visiting Scientist to Tavistock Institute of Human Relations (UK) in February 2012, and is also a member of the Global Cooperative Forum in Switzerland. His most abiding interests are the idea of civilizational transitions, localization, the multidimensionality and paradox of 'reality' and consciousness, and a radical planetary future.||Bayo is a potent and captivating speaker, whose talks have been called 'dense, poetic and challenging' (http://deeep.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/GlobalConference_LongReport.pdf). He earned the moniker (one which he gently resists) of 'the new Mandela' in New York, where he gave his speech on cultural diversity and localization.|

Having spent considerable time on energy related infrastructure projects in emerging markets, her savvy deployments in rural areas addresses a major problem often overlooked. The innovative Biogas backpack technology - making biogas easily stored and transported and the mobile biogas digester is a paradigm shift from the unsustainable use of forest wood to environmental consciousness. Yodit, is a bright, young social visionary combining academics with practice, having deployed and engaged a wide range of users not only in the use of technology, but also in civil society, encouraging adoption through social franchises for aspiring entrepreneurs as biogas producers and sellers. She has engaged with several DFI's, governments and investors to expand her platform and has articulated its utility in conference, investor, client and community settings. She is adept in global civil, government and business environments and has a unique gift in bringing an efficient pragmatism to emerging market solutions to achieve optimum adaptation. The necessity of addressing energy sustainability in rural areas is paramount if we are to solve forest degradation and stave the effects of climate change. I strongly encourage the inclusion of Yodit's perspective as a speaker at the SE4ALL forum.||Yodit Balcha is an Ethiopian agricultural and natural resource economist. She is the founder of (B) energy Ethiopia.
