UNDRIP: Implications for Reconciliation and the Protection of Canada’s Environment

October 19, 2018 - 11:00am to 12:15pm

This is a free webinar. Adopted by the General Assembly in 2007, the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) is regarded as the most comprehensive international instrument on the rights of Indigenous peoples. In Canada, the final report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission speaks to UNDRIP as the framework for reconciliation and calls on the federal government of Canada to develop a national action plan and strategies to achieve UNDRIP.

This webinar, co-hosted by The Sustainability Network and the Canadian Environmental Grantmakers’ Network, is intended to increase our understanding of UNDRIP in the Canadian context, as well as it implications for collective efforts to advance reconciliation and protect Canada’s environment.

Presenters will include Danika Littlechild, UNESCO and Littlechild Law; Eli Enns, Indigenous Circle of Experts for The Pathway to Canada Target 1, and Jessica Clogg, West Coast Environmental Law. Kris Archie, of the Circle on Philanthropy and Indigenous Peoples in Canada, will moderate the webinar.
