Plan it Yourself

Plan an Event

Thinking of organizing an event in your school, at your company or in the community? Below you will find resources to spark ideas to plan and promote energy-related activities. Also, follow us on Twitter(@enertweets), on Facebook, and on Pinterest to get in on the energy conversation.

Here are some suggestions:

For schools

  • screen an energy film – a documentary like Switch
  • plan a field trip to your local museum/science centre or a local power company
  • invite a speaker from the energy community to your school for an energy talk
  • do an energy school program with your class

For businesses

  • share your company’s vision for energy conservation with your employees
  • share energy saving tips with employees
  • engage your employees in the energy conversation with guest speaker at a lunch and learn session

In the community

  • screen an energy film – a documentary like Switch
  • issue an energy challenge to the community

Once you have organized your event, register your event with Talk Energy Week and we will send you a link to our toolkit of official promotional materials, including roll-up banners, information cards, promotional (rack) cards, bookmarks, sample press release and sample messaging.
