Welcome to the Indigenous Climate Hub Member Network
This online network was created for Indigenous peoples, communities and organizations to share Indigenous climate change news, projects, and initiatives. Similar to popular social media websites, you can network and connect with other online members, share news articles and resources on climate change, and join and participate in online groups and forums. What makes this online network unique is that it is 100% dedicated to addressing the climate change challenges faced by Indigenous communities in Canada. Our members include: First Nations, Inuit, and Métis, climate change leaders, Knowledge Keepers and Elders, and community members—all working towards climate change adaptation in Indigenous communities. By sharing, connecting, and collaborating, we can take on climate change challenges as a collective. Together, we are stronger, wiser, and resilient.
What can you do in the Members Network?
On the Indigenous Climate Hub Members Network, members can learn more about other Indigenous community climate change projects. Members have the ability to post updates on their climate change projects and initiatives regularly. Online forums allow members to share their challenges and to ask for advice from other members. There are many ways to interact and collaborate online, including starting and participating in online groups and sharing media. This exclusive members-only network can only be accessed by Indigenous (First Nations, Inuit, and Métis) members and their partners/collaborators; thus, the network creates a ‘safe space’ to connect. The Indigenous Climate Hub Members Network may not be used for solicitation of any kind, including for the purposes of recruitment for climate change academic research. If you have any questions regarding the website, membership eligibility, or if you need technical assistance, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
