Event description

Description

Clean technology is one of the fastest growing economic sectors in the world—and an essential response to climate change. In British Columbia, several First Nations are leaders in the renewable energy sector. Indeed, clean technology may be one of the most effective ways in which First Nations communities can develop and empower themselves.

The Salt Spring Forum and the Canadian Federation of University Women are honoured to co-host Judith Sayers, a champion for sustainable development in First Nations communities.

Dr. Sayers is the President of the Nuu-chah-nulth Tribal Council, an adjunct professor with the Schools of Environmental Studies and Business at the University of Victoria, a board member of Clean Energy BC and the BC Achievement Foundation, and a member of the Order of Canada.

Dr. Sayers served as Chief of the Hupacasath First Nation in Port Alberni for fourteen years. Under her leadership, the Hupacasath First Nation developed a 6.5 MW run of the river project on China Creek—beginning in 2001.

Please join Judith Sayers and the Salt Spring Forum for an informative and inspiring discussion about climate change, clean energy, sustainable development, First Nations, and more!

Tickets available on Eventbrite and at Salt Spring Books. $15 – 2018 Forum Members; $20 – General Public. (Students and low-income residents contact saltspringforum@gmail.com.)

*The Forum’s speaker series is proudly presented by Country Grocer.
