The Energy Futures Roadshow is about harnessing the combined knowledge, skills and networks of the Energy Futures Lab Fellows and focusing it on challenges a community faces in light of energy transition.
The Energy Futures Roadshow pilot is an engagement between the Energy Futures Lab and the community of Crowsnest Pass. Depending on the needs of the community, it will involve a series of sessions over two days with different audiences in the community, including municipal government, local businesses and economic development authorities, schools, the general public, etc. The engagement will be designed in conjunction with the community, drawing on the tools, resources and networks of the Energy Futures Lab, and involving a number of EFL Fellows and Support Team members.
A initial call for Expressions of Interest from communities yielded 12 responses. The initial pilot with the community of Crowsnest Pass will involve different audiences in the community, including municipal government, local businesses and economic development authorities, schools, and the general public. This Roadshow will take place on October 18 and 19, 2018.
