Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this event has been cancelled. While we're working to reschedule as many events as possible, no new dates have currently been determined.


Members of the Indigenous Environmental Justice Project (IEJ Project) will introduce the concepts of environmental justice and will present recent research findings. The IEJ Project is a SSHRC-funded initiative based out of York University whose research aims to develop a distinctive environmental justice framework that is informed by Indigenous knowledge systems, laws, concepts of justice and the lived experiences of Indigenous peoples.

Presented by Jayce Chiblow (Anishinaabe) and fellow members of the IEJ Project, this talk will focus specifically on the intersection of Indigenous Environmental Justice with food, medicine, health, and climate change. Jayce's talk will explore the health impacts of climate change on the Anishinaabek through utilizing community-based research methods.

Presented as part of Toronto Public Library's Our Fragile Planet program series.
