During the first weekend of November 2017, Scout Environmental had the privilege of hosting a workshop at “Reconnecting with Mother Earth: A Youth and Elders Gathering on Climate Change.” Organized by Chiefs of Ontario (COO) and the Ontario First Nations Young Peoples Council (OFNYPC) in Thunder Bay, the conference brought Youth and Elders together to discuss the subject of climate change for the first time in this province. Specifically, it set out to explore what climate change means — really means — to Indigenous communities, ecosystems, food sources, and ways of life.
