Chief Patrick will be speaking on how the community reviews every project, program, and make decisions through the “lens of climate change” and why this is now the only way path forward for them.
Chief Patrick will highlight some the communities’ successes (and share some of the challenges) as he is fond of the sayings “live with the right ones, learn from the wrong ones” and “the secret is doing, not talking”.
In 2018, Chief Patrick was honored with a Clean Energy BC lifetime achievement award for his work in renewable energy project design, permitting, development and operations, and recently was honored with a Clean50 Lifetime Achievement Award for his work on climate change awareness and action.
Kanaka’s 2021 Community Resilience Plan was also recognized as the Clean50 2022 Top project.
Speaker: Chief Patrick Michell, Kanaka Bar Indian Band
Date: December 8, 2021 from 2:00 to 3:00 pm
