8:30 - 9 a.m. How Solar Works with Jim Jacobson from Empower Energy
- Knowledge is power! This quick look at some of the basics of solar photovoltaic energy will explore grid tied vs off grid, hybrid systems, roof mount and ground mount systems.
- Cool It! – is a climate change education program offered to elementary and high school students across British Columbia.
Are you wondering if there is a “silver bullet” solution to the climate crisis? Is it planting trees or going vegan? How about shifting to EVs or stopping new fossil fuel projects?

Participants will work together to create their own solution to keep global heating to the goals of the Paris Agreement using the cutting-edge simulation model En-ROADS, created by Climate Interactive and MIT Sloan. The resulting experience is hopeful, scientifically-grounded, action-oriented, and eye-opening.
Talks within the speaker series are relevant to several Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) including:
