Join us for our new weekly speaker series about what comes next as it relates to our country, the economic system and the climate crisis once the coronavirus has come and gone. Each week, Canadian thought leaders will answer three questions:
- What are your top three 'teachable moments' from this time?
- Big picture: What can we expect of a post-COVID-19 world?
- What does Alberta look like on the other side of this and what would be optimal?
There will be time for Q&A.
We go live at 7:05 so you can continue showing your support for medical and front-line workers.
Our sixth speaker will be Eriel Deranger. Eriel Tchekwie Deranger is an Indigenous rights advocate and member of the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation (ACFN), Treaty 8 of Northern Alberta, Canada. She works to raise awareness about the negative climate, human and Indigenous rights impacts of the extractive industry in her Nations traditional lands and territory. Eriel is a founder of Indigenous Climate Action, a national Indigenous civil society vehicle to push for a united Indigenous climate action strategy in Canada. Eriel has worked with various Indigenous and non Indigenous organizations, including the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations, Indigenous Environmental Network, Sierra Club, Rainforest Action Network and the UN Indigenous Peoples Forum on Climate Change. She is married and mother of two and currently resides in Edmonton, AB.
