A panel discussion presented by Indigenous Climate Action, led by Eriel Deranger and members of ICA’s Decolonizing Climate Policy project.
Join Indigenous Climate Action at this session where we will further expand on the findings from Phase 1 of Indigenous Climate Action’s Decolonizing Climate Policy in Canada project, uncovering the truth of Indigenous realities in the creation and implications from exclusion in Climate policy work to date. Part of reconciliation in action is decolonizing the narrative in which it is presented to us in all its forms, including climate issues. We will hear from a panel of Indigenous people involved directly in their territories on climate solutions, leading us into what Indigenous-Led climate policy includes. Through this panel we hope to have the audience discussing ways they can “decolonize” their perspectives and support ongoing Climate solutions inclusive of all People.
