The South East Energy Diversification Symposium (SEEDS) is your chance to find out what jobs and opportunities are available in the emerging Renewable Energy Industry in southern Alberta.
As Alberta begins to diversify its energy sources with renewable energy activities, an opportunity exists for Southeast Alberta to continue its success in the oil and gas industry while emerging as a provincial and national leader for renewable energy projects.
Recognizing the opportunities for Alberta in renewable energy projects, three partners (Alberta Labour, Economic Development Alliance (EDA) of Southeast Alberta, and Medicine Hat College) collaborated on a study of the impacts these projects would have on the regional economy and labour market. The result of this collaboration is the SEED Symposium.
SEEDS kicks off on the evening of Thursday March 2nd with an address from Dr Denise Henning (Medicine Hat College) followed by a keynote speech from Chris Turner (Author: 'The Leap: How to Survive & Thrive in the Sustainable Economy').
This is then followed on Friday March 3rd with a plethora of keynote speakers and panel discussions covering everything from the awareness and readiness of Alberta to renewable energy, to the innovations and opportunities available to the province right now.
Iron & Earth will be represented at event by the key members of our new Calgary Chapter! Victoria Waye will be participating in the panel discussion around workforce preparation and readiness as she talks on behalf of Iron & Earth and EnergeiaWorks.
