Colectivo Ecologista Jalisco (CEJ)

70% of the electricity in Mexico’s heavily populated Guadalajara Metropolitan Area (AMG) is sourced from a Thermoelectric Power Plant located in the neighbouring state of Colima, which is surrounded by fragile ecosystems and vulnerable populations. CEJ will hold a series of ‘Digital Dialogues on Energy Consumption’ that will: document and communicate the origin of the energy consumed in the AMG; encourage the exchange of concerns and experiences between the consumers of the AMG and the inhabitants of Manzanillo affected by the thermoelectric plant, especially women; enable consumers to discuss and take ownership of their right to human and environmental health and access to clean, renewable and affordable energy.
