Indigenous Leaders on Justice and Transforming the Environmental Movement 

Wednesday, September 14

2:00PM ET - 3:00PM ET 

Indigenous communities have long been at the forefront of advancing environmental justice and have a critical connection and relationship to lands, waters, and sacred sites that have too often been the source of malpractice by corporations, organizations, and various levels of government. They have also been at the forefront of environmental protection leading movements to protect natural resources for all.

 

Join Green 2.0 and First Nations Development Institute for a discussion with Indigenous leaders in the environmental movement on their thoughts on the state of the movement, and changes that must happen in order to achieve justice and equity.
