A new deliberative forum discussion guide on America’s energy future is now available. Michele Archie led the effort to produce this document, which outlines three approaches to addressing energy issues for discussion in communities, classrooms, and online forums.

This brief “issue advisory” updates a 2014 National Issues Forums issue guide, updating the role of renewables and domestic fossil fuel production, and focusing more attention on issues of energy distribution. It is part of the Environmental Issues Forums initiative.

Download the issue advisory, facilitator guide, and post-forum questionnaire here: Energy Choices: What Should We Do About America’s Energy Future? or on the North American Association for Environmental Education’s EIF issue guide page.

Resource guides for middle-school and high-school teachers who want to use these materials and forums in their classrooms are available here.
