Announcing the Citizen Dialogues on Canada’s Energy Future
Recruitment begins for regional dialogues
SFU Centre for Dialogue initiative aims to collect high-quality citizen input into Canada’s energy future
Beginning Monday, July 24, recruitment of a representative group of 150 Canadian citizens will begin. On behalf of the SFU Centre for Dialogue, Forum Research will be contacting potential participants on the basis regional, demographic and attitudinal characteristics. Citizens will travel to five regional dialogues, hosted coast-to-coast in September 2017, to engage in deep conversation around their values and perspectives on energy. They will also deliberate trade-offs and other considerations to different approaches to Canada’s energy future. High quality citizen input will be collected and delivered to federal government decision-makers and other key energy stakeholders at a Winnipeg forum, hosted by Natural Resources Canada, in October 2017.
The Citizen Dialogues on Canada’s Energy Future are a part of Natural Resource Canada’s broader Generation Energy project and are independently designed and implemented by the SFU Centre for Dialogue.
