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 #5: Seventh Generation Waste Warriors with Shianne McKay, Senior Project Manager, Centre for Indigenous Environmental Resources 

Join us as we take a journey with the Seventh Generation Waste Warriors, a group of youth and young adults from Canupawakpa Dakota Nation, Kinonjeoshtegon First Nation, Sioux Valley Dakota Nation and Lake Manitoba First Nation, as they learn and share about waste diversion and recycling goals in each of their respective communities and work together to complete 4 waste diversion action projects, documented through photos and a video.

To confirm your attendance, please REGISTER HERE and sign up for as many of these FREE webinars you like. We’ll send you a link to connect to the webinar, the day before. All webinars will be held via Zoom.

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.
