APC’s first ever Clean Energy Conference took place in Fredericton, NB, in February of 2019. This brought Atlantic First Nations together to discuss clean energy and energy efficiency opportunities in the region. Below is the report summarizing the event and a link to a short video showing event participants.
Atlantic Policy Congress recognizes the severe impacts climate change is having on Atlantic First Nation communities. We are identifying relevant information from scientific journals, reports, media, conferences, and Indigenous Knowledge on effects, mitigation, and adaptation of climate impacts on these communities. From here, we organize, coordinate, and facilitate meetings, and dialogues to engage Atlantic First Nations to share this knowledge. To aid in this endeavor, we will liaise with industry, academia, Non-governmental Organizations, the Assembly of First Nations (AFN), and various government departments to gather more pertinent information. APC also supports AAROM community initiatives regarding mitigation and adaptation measures against climate change impacts.
