Indigenous Climate Leadership Initiative
The Indigenous Climate Leadership Initiative (ICLI) created opportunities for Friendship Centres, youth, and Elders to explore and become more informed about climate change through a multitude of activities and platforms.
Youth and Elders participated in educational activities that provided opportunities for discussion on the changing landscape of the Earth. Participants were encouraged to share perspectives and finds means to transfer knowledge.
Friendship Centres participated in a province-wide rain barrel program which resulted in rain barrels and tanks delivered to Friendship Centres for enhanced sustainability of community gardens and demonstrated climate leadership potential.
Building on the interest and awareness generated during this preliminary campaign, the ANFCA will launch a Climate Leadership working group to define how larger scale impacts can be understood and addressed through an urban Indigenous lens.
