Many issues have been bringing the future of energy in general to the forefront, and they will not be going away. How do we get our energy. What is the cost of it, in financial, social and environmental terms. Are our current practices sustainable. What will happen in those seperate but intertwined realms if we don't change before it's past a point of no return. Will Canada get left behind as the world continues to develop the next energy revolution. Do we have the necessary tools to lead this transition. How do we build the momentum to be a global leader in the new energy world.

Iron & Earth is an oilsands-worker led movement committed to catalyzing the renewable energy sector in Canada. They believe energy development must insure the health and equity of workers, their families and communities, as well as our shared economy and environment. Given the obvious economic realities of global oil markets, we must start investing now in the workforce and manufacturing capacity Canada needs to meet our climate targets and ensure stable, long-term employment for Canadians into the future.

The goals of Iron & Earth are straightforward and achievable.

  • To build public, workforce and industry support for renewable energy development and manufacturing in Canada
  • To build the workforce and manufacturing capacity required to meet climate commitments and a global renewable energy export market
  • To build a community of like-minded co-workers, volunteers, supporters, stakeholders and advisors around their mission, vision and values

Lliam Hildebrand of Iron & Earth joins us to discuss this project that has the potential to become a large part of Canada's future, for today and tomorrow's economy, society and environment. The future is here, can you see it? Join us to hear the vision.
