Alberta’s Green Energy Future

The green energy revolution is underway around the world and will change the way we live, work and get around in the future. The use of clean, green energy is exploding in Alberta and Canada – in many cases, it is the cheapest energy available!  In this entertaining keynote, Dave will use stories, video, and his own brand of inspirational mojo to help you catch up on the new and exciting developments in this field – and tell some great stories of normal people and students who have done extraordinary things in this field as they reduce greenhouse gas emissions, mitigate climate change impacts, and feel more hopeful about the future.

This inspiring talk forms part of the annual conference of the Alberta Council for Environmental Education, and Dave will also suggest ways in which teachers can connect students to these new technologies – and help them make a difference.
