Energy was the hot topic at Shell Canada’s recent Canadian Innovation Summit in Vancouver, where one of Canadian Geographic Education’s flagship programs shared the spotlight.

The Classroom Energy Diet Challenge, a national competition that Canadian Geographic Education runs in partnership with Shell Canada, promotes energy awareness and conservation in schools. It was one of many exhibitors at the Oct. 7 summit, which saw industry experts, scientists and educators gather to discuss energy innovations and opportunities in Canada. Speakers included former astronaut Chris Hadfield and Christy Clark, the premier of British Columbia.
