Encana’s contribution to the Mayor’s Environment Expo for 2014 included information on energy in our daily lives – plus some magic from a wizard.
At the Encana booth, an interactive game on iPads had students thinking about products made from oil and gas such as soccer balls, Band-Aids, toothpaste, crayons and lipstick.
There were also live learning opportunities for students such as a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) presentation at the plaza in front of City Hall that highlighted the “wizardry” of LNG, including its features and benefits.
This year’s Mayor’s Environment Expo, the 25th anniversary of the event, was kicked off by Calgary’s current mayor Naheed Nenshi, and previous mayors David Bronconnier and Al Duerr.
The annual expo, with the theme this year of “the difference a generation makes,” featured exhibits and workshops designed to empower and engage youth to take action on behalf of the environment. Over four days the expo hosted more than 5,000 visitors including first ever grade-specific days for Grade K-3, 4-6 and 7-9 students.
Encana’s sponsorship of the expo is an example of our commitment to contribute to a broader conversation about energy and its uses.
