Indigenous Clean Energy Webinar

Indigenous Clean Energy (ICE) Webinar

During this webinar, we will take closer look at how Indigenous communities and peoples are leading the way for Canada’s clean energy transition. The session will be hosted by the Indigenous Clean Energy Social Enterprise (ICE) – Canada’s leading non-profit for Indigenous clean energy capacity-building. ICE will discuss how they have helped advance broad sustainable prosperity by supporting First Nation, Inuit and Métis clean energy participation and leadership from coast-to-coast-to-coast. ICE is an open and inclusive community where Indigenous peoples and allies strengthen their capacity and relationships by engaging in intensive collaboration to make clean energy projects a reality.
