“Those who know what it means to lose our world and live might have something to lend to a broader humanity that now faces its own existential crises in the form of disease and climate change.” --Julian Brave NoiseCat,

Join students from around the world for an interactive discussion about what Indigenous Leadership can teach us.


Tsq'escen writer, activist, and one of the drafters of the Green New Deal, Julian Brave NoiseCat, has thought deeply

about the interwoven ecological, health, political and cultural crises we face and offers his thoughts on the critical

importance of Indigenous leadership in finding a way forward to a just and caring future.


Julian will be in conversation with Anushay Irfan Khan to explore the importance of learning from the experiences,

histories and wisdom of Indigenous, and Black and racialized communities who have been disproportionally impacted

by climate change and the pandemic – to put their voices at the center of developing the systemic change needed to

move forward, and to find hope and inspiration through solidarity.


Don't miss this essential opportunity for conversation and connection.
