The Fresh Outlook Foundation is partnering with Lake Country’s Creekside Theatre to host a community dialogue about energy literacy, rights, security, and solutions through the lens of BC’s new Climate Leadership Plan.

WAKING THE FROG: Solutions to Our Climate Change Paralysis, this Fresh Dialogues event features a keynote session November 17th from 6:30-8:30pm at Lake Country’s Creekside Theatre, and a multi-sector workshop November 18th from 9am-3pm at the Lake Country Community Gym.

The keynote session features author, engineer, entrepreneur, and venture capitalist Tom Rand, who’ll explain why climate disruption might just be our very own pot of hot water. Every attendee will receive a complementary copy of Rand’s latest book.

A supporting presentation from Steven Pacifico of Energy Exchange, a division of Pollution Probe, will expand participants’ understanding of energy literacy, rights, and security, while promoting a future in which Canadians are united in their energy prosperity, rather than divided by their energy challenges.

Other activities include a student debate about carbon pricing in Canada, and a multi-sector panel discussion with Rand.

The workshop builds on information shared during the keynote session, and kicks off with an interactive game designed by Energy Exchange to increase energy literacy while fostering collaborative problem solving. A panel discussion exploring each sector’s role in energy efficiency, and a student debate about LNG in BC, will be followed with power talks by leaders in sustainable transportation, green buildings, and waste reduction, all of which are addressed in the Climate Leadership Plan.

The session will end with facilitated discussion to identify opportunities for innovative, collaborative, practical, and affordable solutions to energy challenges in the Okanagan.
