Join the Mir Centre at Selkirk College for a conversation with Bruce Wilson and Larissa Stendie on transitioning to renewable energy.
Iron & Earth is a worker-led movement of over 800 Canadian fossil fuel industry and Indigenous workers who are leading the transition to renewable energy. Iron & Earth empowers worker members to develop sustainable energy projects, deliver trainings, run advocacy campaigns, and further the goal of an environmentally safe and socially just planet for everyone.
We recognize world peace will come, not through one simple act, but rather as the final outcome of thousands of smaller undertakings. Dialogue plays a key role and we seek to encourage this with inspiring speakers promoting cultures of peace in our communities.
