British Columbia is entering a new economy based on clean energy. What role will workers, technology, Indigenous communities and businesses play in this next economy? Who will pay for it? How will you take part?

Mission Transition is a podcast that explores this exciting transition to the new clean energy economy. This new mini-series from Sierra Club BC brings you stories from innovators across the province who are moving ahead with solutions for housing, transportation and renewable power.

Moving beyond fossil fuels to the next economy is an opportunity to think about the ways we work, the ways we live and our values for the future. Your hosts Caitlyn Vernon and Susan Elrington hear from workers, business owners and everyday people—while busting common clean energy myths.
