The NGO proposes that the UN, through its Secretary-General, " designate one day as 'World Day of Sustainable Energy for All', to be celebrated from 2015 on, until access to energy for all becomes a reality.

The day will be devoted to practical activities designed to achieve this objective, while providing updates on what needs to be done.
