Co-Creators of a Just Recovery: Reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples in the Context of a Just Recovery
A webinar series with two events to explore aspects of
a Just Recovery and the role of Catholic religious communities in that process.
In two separate virtual gatherings, this annual Joint Ecological Ministry event will reflect on the topic of a Just Recovery and what it means in the context of Reconciliation and Indigenous-settler relationships.
How can we build bridges towards social and ecological justice so necessary for Canada?
