Topic: Aboriginal Power & Renewable Energy

Green energy has always existed in the Aboriginal world where respect for the land is respect for the creator. In the 21st century many communities have embraced wind, solar and battery energy storage as a path to sustainable economies that mother earth powers. These are decisions made by the communities and their leadership. Join us as our panelists discuss how green and renewable energy is either working or not working for their community. It’s about discussing and exploring potentials and the choices made along the way
