Citizens’ Panel on Edmonton’s Energy & Climate Challenges

Final Report of the Edmonton Citizen's Panel  - January 2013

We are the members of the Citizens’ Panel on Edmonton’s Energy and Climate Challenges. We represent Edmonton’s diversity in our ages, incomes, backgrounds, wards, experiences, and views on energy and the environment. We came together at the invitation of the City to make recommendations to Administration and Council, with the City’s commitment that it will seriously consider our recommendations in developing an energy transition plan. We met for a total of 42 hours over six Saturdays between October 13 and December 1, 2012. This innovative public involvement process was convened by the City of Edmonton’s Office of Environment in partnership with Alberta Climate Dialogue (ABCD) and the Centre for Public Involvement (CPI).
