Climate Justice & Indigenous Allyship

Climate Justice & Indigenous Allyship -What Does It Mean? How Do We Get There?

 NOTE: you must book your spot by Wednesday morning.

Energy, environmental protection and Indigenous rights are inextricably linked. This forum offers support for faith communities to move toward allyship with Indigenous communities in the context of climate justice in Canada. Speakers will address the complexities of Canada’s climate future and our relationship with Indigenous peoples through a faith lens. Interactive panels will ensure that participants have an opportunity to engage with Indigenous teachings, ask questions, and join in conversations.
