Energy is required for everything we do in our daily lives, even though we don’t always realize the services it provides. Let’s Talk Energy is an education initiative run by the Canada Science and Technology Museum that strives to enhance energy and climate awareness among Canadians to contribute to a sustainable energy future.

A key part of their programming each year is Talk Energy Week (February 17-24). In partnership with museums, schools, and environmental NGOs focusing on energy, programming this year focuses on the themes of clean technology and renewable energy in remote and northern Indigenous communities. Their website ( has energy games and resources for learners of all ages, including new climate change infographics for K-12 and lesson plans for Grades 7-10. This year connect with a livestream panel talk featuring Minister of Environment & Climate Change Catherine McKenna on February 13. Join the conversation online or help us to support your energy work throughout the week. Email coordinator Adam Young at
