Climate Change and Environmental Justice

Through this project, First Nations is leading multiple efforts to support community partners in addressing climate change and promoting environmental justice.

This work is made possible through a partnership with the Bezos Earth Fund, a $10 billion commitment launched in 2020 to fund scientists, activists, NGOs, and private-sector entities that are taking critical action to combat the climate crisis, preserve and protect the natural world, and support climate justice.

Recognizing the power of storytelling, First Nations works to write, produce, and share stories through our own communications channels. This fall, we created the Digital Storytelling Toolkit to provide an overview of the components of stories, including the role of the storyteller and the importance of being personal, authentic, knowledgeable, and relatable.
