More than 100 socio-economic actors and decision-makers of the Chaudière-Appalaches are invited to participate in the first Forum on the energy transition and climate change adaptation.
The event, organized by the conseil régional de l’environnement Chaudière-Appalaches (CRECA) will be held on Friday 16 march at the Centre Caztel of Sainte-Marie.
Under the honorary presidency of Luc Provençal, mayor of Beauceville and prefect of the MRC Robert-Cliche, the forum will address issues related to the mobilization needed to reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases.
It will address the themes of energy, climate, transportation and land use planning, and will also honor local initiatives. Experts from different backgrounds there will deliver their vision in the form of conferences to shed light on the future prospects, challenges and obstacles to be overcome in order to operate an energy transition that will benefit the region of Chaudière-Appalaches as much of a point of view of social, environmental, economic.
“The coming decades will bring their share of changes in agricultural environments, coastal, forest and the heart of the villages. It is no longer only to adapt to climate change, but also to mobilize itself to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions responsible for these changes, ” said Mr. Provencal.
“This is a rare opportunity to discuss these issues and seek to identify concrete solutions to better equip themselves in the face of climate change and to contribute regionally to the achievement of the reduction targets of greenhouse gas emissions. It is by bringing together individuals who have the power to influence and action in their environment that we will be able to mobilize the Chaudière-Appalaches on these issues, but also on what can be achieved in the short term, ” added Martin Vaillancourt, director general of the CRECA.
The appointment marks the beginning of the third phase of the provincial processes By our own energy (2017-2020).
To be, it is possible to register until march 13 at noon at the www.entreprendrelatransition.ca.
