Date: Wednesday, December 15, 2021 | 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. ET

Speakers: Lisa Kohler, Trisha Henderson, Suzanne Burwell

The Halton Climate Collective is a group of organizations from across sectors (local and regional municipalities, an environmental organization, school boards, and post-secondary institutions) focused on collectively transforming the region of Halton into a low-carbon, climate resilient community.

 

Since its formation in 2017, the Halton Climate Collective has hosted many events, engaged thousands of community members, conducted a residential greenhouse gas inventory, launched a youth-led initiative to support Halton students as climate leaders, introduced a book club for residents, and more. Join this webinar to learn how one community has taken their climate response to the next level through shared, collaborative governance.

As a community, we have the responsibility to honour, care for and respect all the Creation gives to provide us with life. This includes the land, water, air, fire, animals, plants and our ancestors.

The Anishinabek Peoples have utilized this land for millennia and we would like to acknowledge their direct descendants, the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, as the rightful caretakers and titleholders of this land upon which we live, work and conduct ourselves. We acknowledge our treaty relationship and responsibilities to both the land and these original peoples.

We also recognize that this land is rich in pre-contact history and customs, which includes the Anishinabek and Haudenosaunee and since European contact, has and continues to become home for Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. And it is in the spirit and intent of the Dish With One Spoon, wampum agreement whereby we will collectively care for and respect the land, water, animals and each other in the interests of peace and friendship and for the benefit of not only ourselves but of our future descendants.  

The HEN Office resides on Treaty 22, Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. For more information on Treaty 22 go to: http://mncfn.ca/treaty2223/
