Today the report Getting to 2050: Citizen Recommendations was released. This report contains the results from the Citizen Dialogues on Canada’s Energy Future, a major initiative of the SFU Centre for Dialogue. The project marks the first ever cross-Canada deliberative dialogue where randomly selected citizens have advised the Government of Canada on energy policy. It was funded by Natural Resources Canada as part of the Generation Energy initiative.
“The Citizen Dialogues provided an important platform for us to engage and listen to Canadians from all walks of life,” says Jim Carr, Minister of Natural Resources Canada, “and turn their innovative ideas into constructive planning for Canada’s low-carbon energy future.”
