Dr. David Suzuki is visiting Nelson on Sunday, April 30 from 9:00-9:30am and will have a public conversation about renewable energy in the Kootenays with the West Kootenay EcoSociety at the Cafe area of the Kootenay Coop, 777 Baker St.

EcoSociety has luanched its 100% Renewable Kootenays initiative and is asking local cities to pledge to transition to 100% renewable energy no later than 2050 at the community energy-level, including heating and cooling, transportation and electricity.

Dr. David Suzuki will share his ideas on how cities can start this transition to 100% renewable energy and phase-out fossil fuel use.

There will be time for a few questions from the audience on 100% renewable energy and how we can get there locally.
