Become a Clean Energy Champion!
Every day the people at the Pembina Institute wake up to a big mission: to advance clean energy solutions through research, consulting, education and advocacy. We aim to deliver these solutions into the hands of decision makers, thought leaders, the media and industry. Although we’re a hard-working, strategic and productive bunch, it’s still a tall order for a team of our size. We can’t do this alone! Our success ultimately depends on our ability to enlist people like you.
We invite you to join Pembina's community of clean energy champions. Here’s how you can get involved:
- Write letters to the editor, contact government officials, conduct public presentations and mobilize others to take action to support the solutions put forward by the Pembina Institute and others.
- Encourage your colleagues, friends and family to subscribe to the Pembina Institute’s mailing lists, like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
- Contribute some much-needed financial support so we can continue to meet the growing demand for our work.
- Help us reach new audiences by referencing our research in your own professional and volunteer work.
- Help expand our network of key decision makers and opinion leaders in government, industry, academia, and within your communities by introducing us, and our work, to people and organizations in your network.
- Ask us to provide strategic sustainable energy guidance to your organization.
- Invite us to participate in multi-stakeholder dialogues and initiatives on sustainable energy that you are involved in.
- And don’t be afraid to share your expert advice on the issues we’re working on — we love to hear from you!
To get involved, contact Ibrahim Inayatali, director of strategic partnerships.
Together we can find sustainable energy solutions for Canada!
