Energy permeates everything we do. From our purchases to our mobility
to our homes and workplaces, it is the foundation of a modern economy.
But our relationship to energy is changing, caught between
technological development, urgent need for climate action, and concern
over economic competitiveness.

Join the University of Waterloo and the Kitchener Public Library for
a conversation on the big shifts we can expect to see in the over the
coming decades to address these challenges, and what those will mean
for people in Waterloo Region.
