September 20th, 2022 – Indigenous Climate Action: How Indigenous-led responses to the climate crisis can improve community health and well-being with Michelle Brass

We will discuss how land-based, Indigenous-led responses to the climate crisis can lead to increased health and well-being for our families, communities and lands. Addressing the climate crisis requires us to live with each other and the land in a different way, one that can help to restore balance, health and well-being for future generations.
