Coaches Looking after Mother Earth: Learning from an Indigenous Worldview
You are invited to a one hour panel discussion event in partnership with our local ICF Vancouver Island Chapter with guest panelists who are actively engaged in doing work around climate change to support and heal the environment.
This will be a two-part facilitated discussion where panelists will be invited to share what they feel is important about their work and how coaching is or could support them in the work they are doing. The session will wrap up with a call to action. All participants will be invited to commit to one thing they will do in their own lives in support of the planet.
Andrea Palframan (she/her) is the Director of Communication with RAVEN, an organization that supports access to justice for Indigenous Nations who take to the courts to defend their rights and protect the environment.
