The Future is HERE, British Columbia!
Do you know that green jobs currently outnumber those in the tar sands? That’s right – Over 23,000 Canadians now work in clean energy jobs and the sector keeps growing. Some of these jobs are already happening in your community! Sierra Club BC, in association with the BC Sustainable Energy Association and other local groups, wants to celebrate these sustainable solutions and find out more about the exciting green initiatives in your community with the Future is HERE! 2015 Alternatives Tour.
In each community along the Future is HERE! tour we will screen award-winning documentary, “The Future of Energy: Lateral Power to the People,” a powerful film about the ways some communities are responding to the carbon crisis and becoming more connected to each other in the process. The screenings will be followed by panel discussions and question and answer sessions focused on how to make your community more vibrant, healthy, resilient and carbon-neutral.
The screenings will be accompanied by a trade show of local innovators and entrepreneurs already working on sustainable solutions in your community.
