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.

Whilst Mike holds the fort at the booth and answer all questions Iron & Earth.

Iron & Earth was founded and operates on Indigenous land within Treaty Six Territory and Métis Region 4 in amiskwaciy-wâskahikan (in Nehiyawewin/Cree), so-called Edmonton. The home of many Indigenous Peoples including the Nehiyawak/Cree, Tsuut’ina, Niitsitapi/Blackfoot, Métis, Nakota Sioux, Haudenosaunee/Iroquois, Dene Suliné, Anishinaabe/Ojibway/Saulteaux, and the Inuk/Inuit.

We pay our respects to all Indigenous Peoples of this land. Through their spiritual and practical relationships with the land, a rich heritage for our learning and our life as a community has been created and maintained. We recognize that the transition to a low-carbon future must be led by Indigenous Peoples and that there will be no justice unless we acknowledge and repair our relationship with the land.

We are committed to responding to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action and upholding the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and acknowledge that we are always learning and unlearning practices that minimize harm and lead to the development of trust between us and Indigenous Peoples across Nations and urban centers.
