LIEN regional workshop - Kingston 2010

LIEN regional workshop in Kingston on Wednesday, November 10, 2010

LIEN is focusing on building the capacity of its network members and other organizations to become "experts" or "resource people" on low-income energy issues in their communities. To facilitate this, LIEN is in the process of developing an Energy Poverty Training Manual/Toolkit.

This FREE workshop offers great networking opportunities, activities, and an opportunity to provide feedback on LIEN's draft manual.

The LIEN workshop will be facilitated by Barb De Ruyter and hosted by the Sisters of Providence of St. Vincent de Paul.

Who is this workshop for?

Workshop participants may come from a wide range of experience and organizations. Ideally they will include:

  • Staff or community members who are well-positioned to train others in using the toolkit and who also want to be better able to assist low-income consumers in their own communities
  • Individuals who are actively involved in energy awareness and conservation campaigns and want to explore certain topics in greater depth

The workshop and subsequent manual will enable you to:

  • Provide up-to-date and targeted advice on energy poverty to low-income households, groups and agencies across Ontario in order to raise awareness
  • Provide energy efficiency advice and conservation tips to encourage the reduction in energy consumption (and therefore a reduction in energy bills)
  • Support groups and agencies that provide advice to low-income energy consumers so as to ensure maximum take-up of available programs

Date: Wednesday, November 10, 2010
Time: 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. (lunch will be provided)
Location: 1200 Princess Street, Sisters of Providence Motherhouse, Kingston
