One Change founder and president Stuart Hickox recently visited Whitehorse to encourage Yukoners to help define the Yukon’s future energy needs by attending and voicing their input at Yukon Energy Corporation’s energy kick-off and upcoming energy charrette.
The three-day charrette is a series of consultations aimed at building consensus at a community level toward an energy plan for the Yukon. In addition to the charette planned for March 7-9 in Whitehorse, Yukon Energy Corporation will be holding a series of community workshops.
While Stuart was in the Yukon he delivered presentations to three high school classes, including a grade 11 experiential science class, to give students some background on energy in the Yukon and how important it is for them to be part of the solution by participating in the charrette and taking simple actions.
One Change applauds this tremendous opportunity for the community to help shape the future for energy in the Yukon.
