|As Guelph considers becoming a 100% Renewable Energy City, what can we learn from other communities that are already on their way? Join us for an evening featuring a renewable energy leader from Oxford County followed by a facilitated community discussion.
Guelph: 100% Renewable Energy
What can we learn from Oxford County?
7:00 pm Monday May 29, 2017
Guelph Youth Music Centre
75 Cardigan St, Guelph,
ON N1H 3Z7
In 2015, Oxford County (including five rural municipalities and the three urban centers of Woodstock, Ingersoll and Tillsonburg), passed a motion to achieve 100% renewable energy by 2050. There are only two other municipalities in Canada and 1,000 around the world that have taken this bold step. But how daunting is it and how is Oxford progressing down the path to 100%?
Jay Heaman, Manager, Strategic Initiatives for Oxford County will share his experience on how his community is putting the pieces in place to get to 100%.
Share your thoughts with Jay and others in the community over the course of a facilitated community discussion led by eMERGE Guelph Sustainability and CESI (Community Engaged Scholarship Institute) of the University of Guelph.
