The world needs new ways to generate and use cleaner energy. More than that, it needs initiatives and projects that can help improve access to these sources of energy. Achieving this will require more than one technology or one person – it will take many working together.

For the On Top of the World music video, five artists from around the world have joined Shell’s #makethefuture campaign to celebrate five cleaner energy projects across four continents that are helping provide access to energy.

Join us, because together we can #makethefuture.
