Bethlehem Hailu

LLB(Bachelor of Laws)

I have an LLB Degree in Law and Governance and other professional Certificates. I have experience in different fields like Legal Services, customer Service, Human Resource, Administration and Assistant Manager.

I am currently living in Calgary, Alberta. Alberta is Canada’s largest oil and Natural gas producer which inspires me to find out and know more about the sector. I am passionate about the environment as I have personally experienced how the environment is being affected by global warming and  Climate change which makes  Natural disasters even worse. I am excited to be part of the Iron and Earth team whose mission and goal is the future in climate solutions.

Iron & Earth was founded and operates on Indigenous land within Treaty Six Territory and Métis Region 4 in amiskwaciy-wâskahikan (in Nehiyawewin/Cree), so-called Edmonton. The home of many Indigenous Peoples including the Nehiyawak/Cree, Tsuut’ina, Niitsitapi/Blackfoot, Métis, Nakota Sioux, Haudenosaunee/Iroquois, Dene Suliné, Anishinaabe/Ojibway/Saulteaux, and the Inuk/Inuit.

We pay our respects to all Indigenous Peoples of this land. Through their spiritual and practical relationships with the land, a rich heritage for our learning and our life as a community has been created and maintained. We recognize that the transition to a low-carbon future must be led by Indigenous Peoples and that there will be no justice unless we acknowledge and repair our relationship with the land.

We are committed to responding to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action and upholding the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and acknowledge that we are always learning and unlearning practices that minimize harm and lead to the development of trust between us and Indigenous Peoples across Nations and urban centers.
