In early 2016 three organizations in southeast Alberta – Alberta Labour, Economic Development Alliance (EDA) of Southeast Alberta, and the Business Development Center (BDC) at Medicine Hat College – took an interest in the emerging renewable energy industry in Southeast Alberta (SE AB).

Teaching the 21st Century Citizen: Engagement across the Disciplines
Wednesday, Apr. 26
Medicine Hat College
The new century places before us a set of interconnected, seemingly insoluble problems: poverty, global climate change, terrorism, ecological degradation, polarization of income, loss of culture, and many more. Emerging questions include those of identity, and what it means to be an individual global citizen intertwined in the process of globalization. How has technology transformed our understanding of cornerstone democratic institutions, such as a free press, privacy, and political activism? What is our relationship to the world itself? Questions such as this create new demands in educating the next generation of citizens.
