The tenth annual Sources of Knowledge Forum gets underway this weekend in Tobermory.

Program Chair Brian McHattie says like every year, there is a specific overall focus at this year’s forum.

“This year we’re focusing on the future of the Saugeen Peninsula, and we’re using that term Saugeen on purpose as we do recognize that this is the traditional territory of the Saugeen Ojibway Nation,” says McHattie. “It’s important to look at how this place is going to evolve over the coming five or six decades.”

McHattie says that on top of the overall focus on the Bruce Peninsula, or Saugeen Peninsula, there are a few major topics that will be discussed.

“This year, in particular,r we’re focusing on issues like transportation, how might that change in the future? Energy, energy sources, community economic development is a topic, too. Also, of course, we’re talking about climate change, which will affect all of us.”

The forum begins this Friday, May 4, and runs until Sunday, May 6.
