Shaping Our Electricity Future: Have Your Say
Tuesday, 25 May 2021 | 6pm – 7.30pm | Online
In a run up to TEDxStormont COUNTDOWN event in autumn 2021, we are hosting a series of exciting engagements to champion and accelerate solutions to the climate crisis and encourage climate conversations across Northern Ireland. We will be focusing on 5 themes: energy, food, materials, transport and nature.
In the first session, TEDxStormont is to host Shaping Our Electricity Future: Have Your Say which will see passionate climate activists take part in an online event focused on reimagining the electricity grid so that it can deliver a clean electricity future. Experts from SONI, the company which runs Northern Ireland’s electricity grid, will put their plans to the group for insights and challenge.
Taking place on 25 May, the virtual session, hosted by an actress and comedian Nuala McKeever will be an opportunity for attendees to contribute to the consultation and play their part in creating a grid which delivers world-leading levels of clean electricity.
The event will also hear from young climate campaigner Anna Kernahan, and Sara McCracken, RSPB NI’s Head of Fundraising and Communications will introduce RSPB’s Artist of the Year competition.
