In partnership with the Indigenous Center of Energy and dmg::events, this forum is designed to focus on understanding and sharing issues important to Indigenous peoples.
Focusing on “Empowering Connections,” this conference will start off with a “Spotlight on Indigenous Leaders” from around the world with various viewpoints on energy development. The speakers will utilize their Indigenous knowledge and focus on sharing their voices surrounding energy and projects that are important to their Indigenous community. Each section of the conference will be a mix of speakers with Indigenous leaders, leaders from energy companies (renewable energy, mining, oil and gas) with foreign and domestic governments.
