Renewable Skills Videographer - Little Buffalo Cultural Camp, Lubicon Lake Band, Alberta August 2024

ABOUT IRON & EARTH

Iron & Earth is working toward a future where the workforce is dynamically engaged in a thriving green economy. We envision broad participation in the Just Transition, leading to strengthened economic and climate resilience, expanded accessibility to sustainable energy solutions, and meaningful careers. A Just Transition is one that secures the future and livelihoods of workers and their communities in the transition to a low-carbon economy. 

Iron & Earth acknowledges the links between colonialism and climate change, and supports a Just Transition that is informed and led by Indigenous land stewardship.

Established in 2016 by fossil fuel workers, Iron & Earth was sparked by growing concerns of climate change and a collective desire to build a more prosperous and sustainable future.  We believe that if managed well, environmentally and socially sustainable economies can become strong drivers of job creation.

Our vision extends beyond workforce mobilization to foster a community-driven transformation, where people actively contribute to a sustainable and equitable future, for their communities and the planet.

Our team welcomes Indigenous Peoples, racialized persons, people with diverse abilities, genders and sexualities, as well as people with fossil fuel industry experience. We truly value everyone and take  steps to accommodate all persons in our workplace.
