The WADE Building Capacity Workshop from 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. will no longer be taking place. The 50 by ’30 Lunch & Learn from 12:00 p.m. – 12:45 p.m. will still be on, with some extended networking time at the end of the presentation.
Red River College (RRC) and the Manitoba Environmental Industries Association are hosting back-to-back Clean Energy events on Oct. 17, 2011 at the College. 50 by ’30 will be leading a Lunch and Learn and this will be immediately followed by an event hosted by the World Alliance for Decentralized Energy (WADE).
Lunch & Learn: 50 by ’30 | 12:00 p.m. – 12:45 p.m.
50 by ’30 will present on its vision to generate 50 per cent of the energy consumed in Manitoba from renewable sources by 2030 without increasing global greenhouse gases.
Through the implementation of the “Green Plan”, 50 by ‘30 hopes to:

  • Grow Manitoba’s green business sector
  • Reduce Manitoba’s environmental footprint
  • Build individual, corporate, and community capacity to design and implement green projects
  • Encourage widespread public support and involvement

Daniel Friesen, leader of the 50 by ’30 initiative, will present on Manitoba’s current energy situation, what can be done to achieve 50 by ’30, and some practical things organizations can do to help.
Building Capacity Workshop: WADE | 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
WADE Canada, one of the country’s leading industry associations for clean and decentralized energy, is hosting this free “Building Capacity” workshop to help SMEs prepare for success.
