The University of Victoria Faculty of Law, Visiting NAED Chair, Judith Sayers and the Office of Indigenous Affairs are hosting the Renewable Energy Forum at UVic on May 29 and 30. It is the latest in an annual series of forums organized by the National Aboriginal Economic Development Chair, a joint appointment between the Law Faculty and the Gustavson School of Business.
The Forum will showcase innovative First Nations renewable energy projects from across the country. The theme is “Partnerships Connecting Power” and project leaders will present on the types of partnerships that have created the foundations for success in their renewable energy projects.
