First Nation participation in environmental decision making is increasingly recognized as vital to the move towards greater sustainability. Indigenous peoples worldwide share a unique and profound bond with the environment.
Join Gary Pritchard, Environmental Project Manager from Curve Lake First Nation, to gain an understanding of how to work with Canada’s Indigenous Peoples when engaging on environmental business or projects.
This webinar is intended to get young professionals thinking about how they do business with or conduct environmental business differently with local first nation communities. Participants will learn how to search out local First Nation community interests based on the proximity of a project location to treaty rights and when engagement should take place.
The webinar is modelled after Rivers Edge Education and Consulting’s transformative workshop model, with a special focus on environmental projects.
This webinar is designed for employers, employees, and professionals who currently work or would like to work with Indigenous people on environmental projects.
