Iron & Earth presents Renewable Skills with MCC
Iron & Earth worked with Desmond Bull from the Louis Bull Tribe in 2020 to develop two community-based rapid upskilling programs for fossil fuel industry and Indigenous workers.
This video is the story of that experience.
Our programs include five days of in-class work and five days of hands-on training which involves the installation of a small solar and wind energy system. Iron & Earth’s Renewable Skills training programs are upskilling fossil fuel industry and Indigenous workers into emerging solar and wind energy careers while supporting communities that are interested in installing renewable energy infrastructure.
We are proud to be have partnered with Maskwacis Cultural College (MCC) and other partners to deliver these training programs. Iron & Earth offers fully funded on the job training programs and renewable power generation infrastructure for remote and Indigenous communities.
Iron & Earth is committed to partnering with Indigenous workers to empower their communities to become self-sufficient in training programs, clean energy transition projects, and employment opportunities to combat environmental racism.
It falls to all of us to continue the work of healing and reconciliation in our communities and our organizations. Our relationship with the land and the people who live here shapes who we are. It is in the spirit of reconciliation and honouring the past that we recognize treaties and agreements wherever they are and wherever we work.
We also acknowledge all peoples who live, work, and play on this land, and who honour and celebrate this territory.
As individuals and teams we may make mistakes along the way, but we are dedicated to growth, openness, compassion, and forgiveness. These principles in our work are essential to building successful and healthy relationships with individuals, communities, organizations, and governments.
We look forward to building a path to lead us to a better relationship with Indigenous nations and the environment around us based on peace, friendship, and respect.
