David Turowec, Nationbuilder Manager

David TurowecWeb Design Diploma (Durham College)

David is a full-stack web designer/developer based in Oshawa Ontario who has, over the past few years, focused on delivering easy to manage and maintain websites. His passion is to help non-profit organizations through technology, making sure that they have the tools they need to better further their mission. 

After seeing the growing negative effects in the world, David’s dream is to one day live in a society that has sustainable, equitable, energy for all.

David is excited to bring his expertise in web design and development to Iron & Earth.

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.
