Our energy future requires us all to realize that, whether or not we work in the energy sector, we are part of the energy system. As producers, consumers, conservers and change-makers, and we must work together to achieve what the future requires of us; renewable and non-renewable; Indigenous and non-Indigenous; the solutions will require collaboration which transcends polarizing viewpoints.
