Cambium Indigenous Professional Services (CIPS) is proud to announce that our very own Kerry-Ann Charles has been asked to speak (on behalf of the CIPS team) at the Greenbelt Foundation's Information Session to be held on Tuesday, July 27, 2021.
The primary goal of the information session will be to communicate the findings and recommendations as outlined in the Near-Urban Nature Network Report and profile the Southern Ontario Nature Coalition (SONC) partners' roles in driving this project.
Other key topics include: - Updating key government officials on project milestones
- Communicating the project’s alignment with national and global biodiversity commitments, including the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity
- Demonstrating the benefits that a near-urban nature network contributes to the health and well-being of people, and that of all life in the area
Kerry-Ann who is the Environmental Partnership Coordinator (at CIPS) will be discussing Indigenous Engagement as it pertains to climate change and adaptation for the protection, preservation, connection, restoration and stewardship of near-urban nature and lands. Kerry-Ann has over 20 years experience and is a well sought after guest speaker for Indigenous Climate change perspectives.
Her valuable input and insights will help provide the Southern Ontario Nature Coalition with key ideas and information on Indigenous Perspectives when it comes to climate change and adaptation.
CIPS is honored to be a part of the Greenbelt's Information Session and look forward to participating in this very important session.
CIPS would also like to acknowledge Kassie McKeown (Technical Advisor, Indigenous Projects) and Tiffany Taylor (Project Administrative Coordinator) for their contribution to this very important initiative.
