Investing for Environmental Justice in Indian Country: Exploring Social Justice Impact Investing in Tribal Projects

October 23, 2015
8 a.m.–5 p.m.
UC Irvine School of Law, Room LAW 3750

This workshop roundtable will connect Indigenous Nations, Native grassroots organizations, and members of the philanthropic and impact investment communities to guide investing for environmental justice and sustainable development throughout Indigenous territories in California. The roundtable will provide a forum for multiple stakeholders to meet and discuss the challenges of environmental justice and sustainable development. The roundtable discussions will develop a set of principles that may be used to guide investment for culturally and ecologically responsible energy justice projects created and led by Indigenous peoples.

The workshop is being convened by the UC Irvine School of Law Center for Land, Environment, and Natural Resources (CLEANR) and co-sponsored by the Sacred Places Institute for Indigenous Peoples, Native Americans in Philanthropy, and the UC Irvine Sustainability Initiative.
