There is broad recognition among Albertans and Canadians about the need to transition away from using fossil fuels as our primary source of energy. What is less clear is what exactly we are transitioning to, and what that transition will mean for our daily lives, our communities, and our economies. Without answers to those questions, it is impossible to address issues such as what government policies will be required to achieve the transition, how we prepare our economy for transition, and how we ensure that the transition will treat workers and communities fairly.

Join us for a free presentation by renowned earth scientist David Hughes as he discusses our current energy mix in Canada, the deployability of renewable energy sources, and what will be required in order for us to achieve the degree and scope of transition that is required by the climate crisis.
