Reality check

Sometimes making something “green” involves getting a little dirty.

Our energy landscape is changing, but we will not flip the switch overnight. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to decarbonizing our world.

Emerging Alaskan leaders exploring sustainable energy solutions for our global future.

In our ever-changing media landscape, we want you to know why we're doing what we're doing.

Why Velocity and what are we doing?
What is our Mission Statement?
Paving the path for a sustainable tomorrow by engaging Alaska’s current and future industry leaders and promoting the balance of clean energy and responsible resource development.
What are our goals?
Velocity aims to bring the community together through a conversation on our collective energy future by influencing the sustainable energy transition and consumption strategies on a large scale.

Velocity will achieve this by: hosting in-person and virtual events featuring thought leaders of varying disciplines, backgrounds and expertise, connecting with the next generation through public education outreach, and investigating, creating and sharing the latest energy solutions content to engage discussion and implement solutions in Alaska now.

We hope to energize and activate Alaska's young professionals in energy and form a community of like-minded professionals working toward a cleaner future, while realizing responsible resource development is necessary in the meantime.
Media literacy and how we choose what we post
In the post-truth era (a time of misinformation, questioning scientific fact, and eroding trust in science) the terms “fake news” and “media literacy” are important. The first is pretty straight-forward. Fake news = blatant misinformation. Anything from a mis-reported story to a conspiratorial blog post. This is information that one should simply not engage with (and we won't). 

But then there’s “media literacy,” or the idea that critical thinking should be applied to the things you read—especially on the internet. Now, there are critics of the media literacy movement, and rightfully so. Consider: someone teaches you how to interpret the media that you read.

At Velocity, we try to steer clear of framing stories and hopefully provide a more wholistic approach. Additionally, think we’re doing a bad job? Drop us a note (and preferably a reputable source of info) and we will try and work it into our outreach! We want to learn just as much as we want to share.
How can I get involved?
We're moving the needle on engaging Alaska's young professionals who are passionate about all forms of energy. We host frequent lunch & learns, mixers, and events, meaning there's something for everyone to get involved!
