Organization: TREC Education

Date: May 25, 2011

Location:Exhibition Place,Toronto,Ontario

Facilitator: Katrusia Balan, Kid’s World Energy Festival Educator, TREC Education

About the Organization: TREC Education “empowers Ontarians to make informed choices about our shared energy and natural resources”. TREC Education has won several awards, including the 2011 Green Toronto Award, for their environmental programs. They focus on linking young students to the environment and sustainable energy practices. They believe everyone should have access “to good information about renewable energy and conservation”.

Tasks: Learn about the alternative, sustainable options for energy. We also visitedToronto’s only wind turbine and did some exercises that applied solar power to low-powered items.

Our objective was to learn about the alternatives to our environmentally abusive means of energy (ie. oil, petroleum, coal, etc.). As we found out, there are definitely cost-effective ways to power society without killing the environment. It is funny to realize though, that if a society we demanded for these sustainable options, we probably would have had them by now. Unfortunately, our society dictates we go with oil.

            Hopefully, by applying what we learned we can be a part of the change to demand for these alternative means of energy. We have to let the government know that we are disgusted by our addiction to oil. We want a clean and green future.
