How Can Regina's Renewable City Motion Benefit Diverse Communities?

Speaker: Dr. Emily Eaton, University of Regina

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released a report in 2018 that indicated the pressing need for a global energy transition off of fossil fuels. Only three weeks later, the Regina City Council passed a motion committing to a 100% renewable target by 2050. In this talk, Dr. Emily Eaton discusses the findings of focus group research done with representatives from 27 community organizations that work with marginalized communities as well as 12 representatives from local labour unions. The focus groups examined how a just energy transition in Regina might benefit and impact marginalized communities and organized labour. Dr. Eaton examines how climate change policy can address issues of social and economic justice and improve the lives of us all.
