We are very pleased to announce our presence at the 6th «Rencontre des municipalités efficaces», which will be held on 6 and 7 April 2016. The event will be held at 40 Centennial Avenue in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield.
General description of the meeting:
In December 2015, COP 21 was held in Paris in order to sign an agreement to be the greatest adventure of all humanity. The words reflecting our global reality can no longer be filtered: environmental and climate emergencies, major hazards, collapse of the life support systems … Scary words, but still pronounced by the presidents of the great democracies of the world today. So, what do we do?
Municipalities are ever in sight to the fight against climate change because the territorial component is critical to the implementation of durable development. But the municipality is the conductor of the territory …
The global environmental problems like accommodation, the need for durable economic models, the need to work on maintaining systems of life, adaptation imposed by climate change, territorial activity, the energy transition, renewal infrastructure, indebtedness of future generations, what form does the overall equation of the problem currently experienced?
And if, in all logic, the energy was at the heart of the problems, but also solutions. Because for all the support systems of life of the city to the village, economy ecosystems, without energy, nothing happens without energy management, nothing is created.
Even if Quebec is powered with clean energy, the challenge remains daunting in terms of adaptation, territorial organization and change if the goal is to seize the opportunities being hatched behind the energy transition rather than suffer them. Municipalities must be at the heart of solutions to ensure energy transition and the development of a low carbon economy. More than an opportunity, we must admit that it is a necessity and a responsibility that must be part of the triple performance.
Encounter offers municipalities effective for the 6th edition of a conference cocktail, panels, workshops and technical capsules that will answer your questions and guide you in your intentions. Do not miss this appointment about municipalities and energy issues!
