Honouring Indigenous Climate Leadership

A roundtable discussion showcasing Indigenous-led research and policy responding to climate change.

Event Date: 15.06.23

To amplify and centre Indigenous voices at the cutting-edge of climate research and policy, the Canadian Climate Institute, in partnership with the Centre for Indigenous Environmental Resources, will host a roundtable discussion on June 15 with the authors of three new case studies in our Indigenous Perspectives series.

These case studies showcase the work of Indigenous researchers, Knowledge Holders, water protectors, and community members. The discussion will highlight how Indigenous self-determination and knowledge are integral to designing effective regional, provincial, territorial, and national climate policies.
