Leading Indigenous Clean Energy with guest Chris Henderson. Innovating Leadership Co-Creating Our Future With Maureen Metcalf

Guest Chris Henderson


Indigenous voices are often left out of conversations on clean energy and climate change. Yet, their generations of environmental stewardship make them pivotal players in our energy future.

Chris Henderson, a Canadian eco-entrepreneur and community leader, discusses the role of Indigenous communities in Canada’s shift towards clean energy. In the process, renewable energy is enhancing social equity and fostering economic opportunities for Indigenous peoples.

Chris and host Maureen Metcalf delve into the broader implications of this shift, including environmental sustainability, technological innovation, and the global relevance of Canada’s approach to clean energy.

Chris Henderson is the President of Lumos Clean Energy Advisors and author of Aboriginal Power: Clean Energy & the Future of Canada’s First Peoples.
