BCSEA Victoria Chapter has been involved in advocating for a sustainable energy future in many ways for the last 14 years. Among other things, we organized the Changing Gears active transportation expo in 2014, put on a speakers series on many aspects of sustainable energy and organized 6 candidates debates for the federal election in 2015, and this year have been advocating for local municipalities to adopt 100% renewable energy by 2050 including organizing a town hall in Saanich to impart information and receive ideas from the public on a 100% renewable energy future for Saanich. By advocating for sustainable energy, we help to make the reductions in greenhouse gas emissions that we all must do possible, and our advocacy encourages a more vibrant community through such things as reducing vehicular traffic, encouraging more community oriented forms of transportation and localizing energy production and consumption.
