1. Earth: Impacts of Colonization

Reconciliation requires an understanding of Canada’s colonial history and an acknowledgement of the enduring strength and resiliency of Indigenous peoples. This workshop provides an overview of our shared history of colonization and explores how Indigenous worldviews must inform our journey towards a better future for all.

We thrive by being together in a good way on the land.

 

You are encouraged to attend all four workshops (Earth – June 1, Air – June 8, Fire – June 15, Water – June 22) but they are designed in a way that you can learn, participate, and contribute in each workshop if you can’t attend them all.

In partnership with Andrew Greer, Managing Director: Purppl

Andrew Greer is the Managing Director at Purppl (Purposeful People), a social enterprise accelerator. Purppl helps social enterprises and social purpose organizations build sustainable business models and sustainable impact models.

Here are a few words from Andrew on the challenge, the journey, and the workshops.

“Systemic challenges like climate change or reconciliation require a collaborative approach. The way forward is inclusive, equitable, and cross-cultural. Not acting is no longer an option.”

“Unsure of what to do or scared to take steps? Me too. I invite you to learn with and from others in these workshops. Collectively we improve Indigenous cultural inclusion and equity to make way for a different future.”
