The 2020 RISE Webinar Series was created in response to the pandemic cancellation of the 2020 RISE Conference that was originally scheduled for May 19-21, 2020 in Winnipeg, MB. As a result of the cancellation, we decided to ask some of our speakers to do an online webinar instead! This approach will allow teachers from across the province, as well as the general public, to attend online and learn about the variety of sustainable education projects, initiatives and activities that are happening around Manitoba.

Webinar #2: Indigenous Food Sovereignty, Security and Sustainability with Byron Beardy, Kimeechiminan (Our Food) Program Manager, Four Arrows Health Authority

Byron will discuss his understanding of the connections of land-based language in the context of food from an Indigenous lens. Byron shares his learned knowledge of cultural protocols, customs, practices with a focus on Indigenous food sovereignty, security and sustainability.

The Recognizing Indigenous Sustainable Education (RISE) conference is about promoting sustainability through Manitoba’s First Nation schools and communities with a focus on waste reduction. Teachers from across Manitoba attend to learn about sustainable environmental practices and waste reduction efforts. Educators return home able to apply this knowledge within their classrooms, schools and communities in the hopes of affecting long-term change through action-oriented projects or programs.
