Event description

Description

The Energy Futures Lab (EFL) invites you to explore what an energy transition could look like for the Town of Drayton Valley. The EFL will host the Energy Futures Roadshow and will involve different audiences in the community, including municipal government, local businesses and economic development authorities, schools, and the general public.

ROADSHOW OBJECTIVES

  1. Increase the level of understanding about the energy system in general and in the community.

  2. Explore the polarity that an energy transition can create and inspire action towards radical middle initiatives.

  3. Establish a commitment by community members to take actions or next steps on what emerges from the Roadshow.

  4. Identify at least one project or next step that establishes an ongoing connection between the EFL and Drayton Valley going forward.


ROADSHOW WORKSHOP #1 DETAILS

September 5th - Energy Transition Simulation

Through a role-playing simulation, this session will provide an opportunity for participants to experience decades of energy transition in one day and to draw insights from the experience for taking action together in Drayton Valley. This event will take place from 8:30 am - 5 pm.

September 6th - Community Resilience

The second day takes a workshop format and sees participants explore the implications of the Energy Futures Lab vision for Drayton Valley. The workshop will feature guest speakers including EFL Fellows. The workshop will include other activities that help participants better understand the opportunities and risks of energy transition for Drayton Valley, showcase existing local initiatives, and explore what near-term initiatives (existing and new) are most important and needed to become a more resilient community. This event will take place from 8:30 am - 5 pm.


ROADSHOW WORKSHOP #2 DETAILS

October 28th - Taking Stock & Action Planning

This workshop will be an opportunity for participants to come together to discuss how collaboration and action has been undertaken since Workshop #1. In light of this, learning will be shared and captured and participants will then have an opportunity to plan for the next round of action. This event will take place from 8:30 am - 5 pm.


REGISTRATION OPTIONS

Ideally participants attend both days of Workshop #1 and the follow up Worskshop #2 as the work does build upon the previous days. However, we understand that this can be a challenge to build into ones schedule, so please register for each of the days that you are able to attend.

Refreshments, snacks and lunch will be provided for all workshops. Space is limited, so register soon.
