Generation Energy Youth Summit and Forum: October 10-12, 2017
In collaboration with Student Energy and The Public Policy Forum, LTE hosted a youth summit at the Manitoba Museum in Winnipeg on October 10th. Youth gathered to share their own ideas as well as ideas brought from their respective communities, about Canada's energy future. LTE played a pivotal role in bringing the event out of the museum and to people everywhere by managing multiple social media streams throughout the day. LTE also facilitated a one hour livestream event where Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr joined youth in a panel discussion. The livestream event has been viewed by over 7,000 people.
The summit was aligned with NRCan's Generation Energy Forum, a nationally scaled event where nearly 800 delegates gathered to learn from experts and also to engage in rich discussions with them about our energy future. The forum was scheduled at the end of six months of national consultations with people throughout Canada. Some of these were lead by NRCan but many more were lead by Canadians in their communities. NRCan will be working in the coming months to generate a final report reflecting the outcomes of the Generation Energy project in its entirely.
