Speaker Series 

The 2016/2017 Faculty of Environmental Studies (FES) Speaker Series is focused on bringing to light Indigenous women & youth perspectives on environmental justice.

This year’s series aims to form a critical link between theory and practice by reflecting upon the lived experience of grassroots activists and leaders in the Indigenous environmental justice movement. In keeping with place-based objectives of Indigenous protocols, invited speakers will primarily be from the Great Lakes area in southern Ontario.
