Citizens’ Panel on Edmonton’s Energy & Climate Challenges Session Reports

From October to December, 2012, fifty-six Edmontonians gathered to learn about climate change and energy vulnerability from balanced materials and presentations. The Panel worked together over six day-long sessions. The session reports give a day-by-day overview of main deliberation activities.

Panelists heard from City representatives, industry, and university experts, and took part in facilitated exercises to help them find common ground. Sessions referred to Edmonton’s Energy Transition Discussion Paper to help develop recommendations for the City’s consideration.

The Panel’s Final Report was completed in January 2013 and was presented to City Council’s Executive Committee on 15 April 2013.
