Clean energy strategies are successfully being put into place in many parts of the world. One of the most exciting examples of this transition to clean energy is that of the region of Samsø in Denmark. In 1997, Samsø won a government competition to become a model renewable energy community. Now, 100% of its electricity comes from wind power. During his visit last year, as Energy and Natural Resources Critic, Peter and his wife were informed by local residents that they were only the third and fourth Canadians to visit this area. Peter undertook this trip to Denmark and Germany, at his own expense, to examine green energy policies.

Please join us in person, or live at newwest.tv, to hear Peter Julian, Member of Parliament, Burnaby–New Westminster, talk about the Danish model, the Germany model, and how successful clean energy strategies can be great for the economy and the environment.

“We believe that sustainable food is at the heart of a sustainable society. Our project, the Southwest BC Bio-Regional Food System Design and Plan, will offer a vision and roadmap of prioritized actions and strategies that can be taken by farmers, entrepreneurs, consumers, governments, and Indigenous communities that clearly define the economic, environmental and community benefits of this potential and vision.”
