Communities and Aboriginal

On the front lines of energy systems change...

Communities are the interface between human societies and the environment. Large or small, urban or rural, life within these collectives has often been defined by access to energy resources, and the need to help define the energy systems of the future.

In order to better understand the impact of future energy systems on our communities, we must study the metrics for success, the risks, the opportunities, and the level of preparedness in our existing society. We must also understand the perspective of Aboriginal peoples, as the energy traditions which accompanied Europeans to North America undergo systematic change.
