AN INDIGENOUS-LED CLIMATE CHANGE INITIATIVE
Indigenous Climate Action (ICA) is the only Indigenous climate justice organization in Canada. This initiative does not belong to an individual, but rather to a collective of people who believe in the power of transformative change.
Indigenous People as Changemakers
Indigenous Climate Action (ICA) is an Indigenous-led organization formed in 2015 that inspires action for climate justice by supporting Indigenous communities to build power and drive solutions to climate change. We work to equip Indigenous communities with the right tools, education, and capacity needed to ensure Indigenous knowledge is a driving force in climate solutions.
Indigenous peoples have a unique understanding of their territories which already holds the solutions to climate change. This knowledge is our planets biggest resource in key to creating real results. ICA works to inspire and empower Indigenous communities to take direct action with the knowledge they have held for generations.
