Indigenous Environmental Leadership Pathways Program
SUPPORTING INDIGENOUS LEADERSHIP
100% Online Indigenous Environmental Leadership Program
The School of Environment and Sustainability at Royal Roads University, in partnership with ECO Canada, has launched a new online, undergraduate program in Indigenous Environmental Leadership. The program is designed to prepare Indigenous learners to work with environmental organizations in their communities and nations to identify and address environmental challenges.
This online program is meant to create a collaborative platform for both experienced and newly emerging Indigenous environmental leaders, nurturing mutual growth. Rooted in the enduring traditions of Indigenous stewardship and connection with the natural world, the program delves into environmental management, Indigenous science, and leadership from diverse perspectives. Seamlessly weaving experiential learning, theory, and hands-on fieldwork, this pathway guides you toward advanced degrees in environmental practice.
