Trottier Symposium on Sustainable Engineering, Energy and Design

Full Event

Energy is fundamental for our society. An energy strategy consists of the decisions, policies and regulations that touch on energy issues within a political jurisdiction. Establishing an energy strategy involves making choices that inevitably impact society, and the full consequences of these choices may be difficult to grasp.

The presentation and discussions will expand on the issues raised in the paper Energy in Quebec and Canada: A Conversation Starter available on this web page.
Everyone in attendance will have the opportunity to take a stand on various issues both through a personal response system (also known as “clickers”), and by asking specific questions during the discussion period.
