Event description

Description

The Energy Futures Lab (EFL) invites you to explore what an energy transition could look like for the City of Grande Prairie. 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

  • Increase understanding about the energy system at a high-level and in a local context.

  • Explore polarities in energy transition and inspire action on initiatives that move towards an energy future that honours both polarities.

  • Secure a commitment by community members to take collaborative action on initiatives surfacing from the workshop.

  • Establish an ongoing connection between the Energy Futures Lab, its broader network and the municipality.

ROADSHOW WORKSHOP #1 DETAILS

April 3rd - 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. This event will take place from 9 am - 5 pm.

April 4th - Community Resilience

The second day will take a workshop format and be a place for participants to explore the implications of energy-related issues for Grande Prairie with each other. The workshop will offer guest speakers and provide other activities that will help participants better understand the opportunities and risks of energy-related issues to the City of Grande Priaire, showcase existing local initiatives, and explore what near-term initiatives (existing or new) are most important and needed to become a more resilient community. This event will take place from 9 am - 5 pm.

ROADSHOW WORKSHOP #2 DETAILS

May 31st - 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 9 am - 5 pm.
