Keepers of the Water Council

$8,000 to support efforts to strengthen Indigenous community-based monitoring strategies through direct outreach to Indigenous communities impacted by coal and tar sands across Alberta, Canada, as well as through several smaller community meetings and a larger gathering for 50 Indigenous participants. Keepers of the Water gatherings are vital to ensure that Indigenous communities are supported in addressing the impacts of fossil fuel extraction and to help strengthen community-based monitoring strategies that support environmental review submissions and legal proceedings in the pursuit of environmental justice.
