Alison met Leor almost a decade ago when they both worked at Nexen. They connected over the importance of corporate social responsibility. They know first hand how gaining a social license for oil, gas and renewable energy projects is the only way, in this new economy, to get our natural resources to markets.
Craig Dunn joins the campaign’s evening discussion series again. He’ll discuss how to increase profitability of existing oil & gas wells and re-purpose Foothills abandoned and suspended wells to make them into community centre-pieces that can feed and fuel the local economy.
