2018 Forum Weekend Overview

Shaping the Future SOK 2018 LogoThe 10th Annual Sources of Knowledge Forum “Shaping the Future of the Saugeen Peninsula” will be held May 4‑6, 2018, in Tobermory, Ontario.  In recent years, we have taken a look at the past of our Peninsula and how we can use that knowledge in the future. This year, we plan to build on that by moving forward and examining such topics as alternative energy and transportation advancements, and the effect they may have on the development in our communities. We will bring in authorities on these subjects to give us an idea of what we can expect to see happening in their fields. One such authority is Environment Canada’s senior climatologist, David Phillips. With over 40 years working for Environment Canada and years of personal research, we feel his insights into climate change will fit nicely into the Forum’s theme.

A traditional feature of these Forums is a public event, which will be held on the Friday afternoon this year (May 4th), and will promote rural options for renewable energy and electric vehicles. Along with solar installers and site visits, the Plug n’Drive Discovery Centre will be featured. Through them we are challenging EV drivers in Southern Ontario and beyond to attend a rally in Tobermory. While EVS are generally considered an urban driving option, we believe that with the necessary infrastructure they could also be a viable rural choice as well. One of the goals of the Forum is to promote the installation of this infrastructure.

The Forum has sold out the last couple of years, so don’t relay in registering!
