Mission Transition: Clean Energy and Beyond
A podcast from Sierra Club BC
Nearly every day now, we hear of some new innovation moving the world toward clean energy. The transition away from fossil fuels is firmly underway. For many of us, this means installing solar panels, buying an electric vehicle or maybe giving up the car altogether.
But this transition raises many questions most people haven’t even started to consider. What actually counts as clean energy? Who should make decisions about how it’s produced—and how do these projects impact communities? How do we need to rethink land use in a clean energy economy?
Sierra Club BC’s podcast Mission Transition: Clean Energy and Beyond dives into these questions and more with interviews from thinkers and doers who are all passionate about making the transition happen.
The podcast is produced by award-winning former CBC journalist Susan Elrington and co-hosted with Sierra Club BC Campaigns Director Caitlyn Vernon, with production help from Kat Zimmer, Manager of Communications.

About Mission Transition
Released in 2018, the first season of Mission Transition showed listeners the possibilities of the transition to clean energy with energy efficient buildings, cars and food production. We talked to workers about the declining job openings in fossil fuel industries and the need to retrain workers for a clean energy economy.
Now, Season 2 aims to examine the transition beyond solar panels and electric vehicles to look at the larger questions this transition brings. We’ll hear from journalists, decision-makers, activists, entrepreneurs, Indigenous land protectors and more. And we share the inspiring story of how communities on Haida Gwaii are working toward their goal of going 100% renewable. In our first episode, Youth Up Front, a group of youth climate strike organizers share their visions for the future.
