Métis Nation Bc, in partnership with Fraser Basin Council, is hosting a series of virtual Climate Preparedness Workshops and invites you to join in. Starting Thursday, January 14, the workshops will take place once a week for three weeks with a different theme each week.
“Climate change is exposing Métis Nation members to changes in weather patterns and more frequent extreme events. These changes are putting communities at risk and impacting the health of community members. Climate change is also affecting ecosystems and the plants, fish and animals that provide food, medicine and culturally-important items. It is becoming clear that work needs to be done to prepare for climate impacts. The multi-generational knowledge, skills and experiences of Métis People are needed to make good decisions on how to shift and build resilience in this changing world.
These 2-hour, free virtual workshops will focus on Climate Preparedness topics relevant to Métis Nation members. The workshops are supported through Fraser Basin Council’s BC Regional Adaptation Collaborative program, funded by Natural Resources Canada and the BC Ministry of Environment & Climate Change Strategy.
