­­­What is a CoLab?

The ICE Network CoLab Series is a webinar and event series designed to share knowledge and build collaboration amongst participants on the ICE Network on their Indigenous clean energy projects and initiatives. The CoLab series consists of monthly online or in-person sessions focused on a variety of subjects such as energy efficiency, bioenergy, community energy planning, project development & diesel reduction, and technology & innovation. We invite anyone with an interest in learning about these subjects to attend. The sessions are free and open to all. 

Program Outcomes in 2019

During the first year of programming, ICE hosted ten online CoLabs and a series of five in-person sessions at the ICE Gathering on October 30th in Ottawa.

There were 783 CoLab attendees in 2019 for webinar-based sessions, plus an additional 120 attendees at the ICE Gathering. The feedback for these sessions has been very positive and has formed the basis for the development of the 2020 program. Feedback was collected in a survey sent to each attendee after CoLab sessions, in an ICE Network-wide survey, and at the ICE Gathering in October 2019 in Ottawa.
