  • Leveraging Carbon as a Financial Instrument: A breakdown of how carbon can be used to enhance and drive economic activity in First Nations communities.

Reducing Carbon Through Indigenomics

Indigenomics is about approaching economics from an Indigenous worldview.

Indigenomics reverses the systematic exclusion of Indigenous peoples from the economic table and return their inherent right to access a modern economy.

In the Global First Nations Carbon Summit will provide the platform for Indigenous leaders and communities to highlight how they will navigate environmental sovereignty, economic development and the carbon economy with Indigenomics as the foundation.
