The City of Regina has committed to transition to 100% renewable energy by 2050. You can contribute to this goal by participating in Cathedral’s 100% Renewable Regina Forum on February 29.
Connect with other Cathedral residents who understand the importance of transitioning to renewables citywide. Share your stories, visions, and ideas for the City’s plans, and fuel excitement for the possibilities.
The 100% Renewable Regina Forum is an opportunity for neighbourhood-level dialogue and will produce a report that will be presented to Regina’s city council.
Youth forums will be facilitated by educators for groups aged 6 to 10 years old and 11 to 15 years old.
Registration is free.
