Achieving Strength, Health, and Autonomy through Renewable Energy Development for the Future
“Indigenous peoples have lived for thousands of years on this continent without fossil fuels. It is appropriate that Indigenous peoples lead the way out of dependency and addiction to fossil fuels and to rely on the power of the elements, the sun, the wind, and the sea once again… When there is a huge solar energy spill, it is called a ‘really nice day’.”
-Chief Gordon Planes of T’Sou-ke Nation (Team Partner)
A SHARED Future (Achieving Strength, Health and Autonomy through Renewable Energy Development for the Future) is a 5-year program of research sponsored by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and led by Dr. Heather Castleden. The entire research team is comprised of dozens of academics, community leaders and members, government and non-governmental organization representatives from Canada and abroad. At the centre of this program is reconciliation and healing our relations – with the earth, and with each other.
