SHARING AND CREATING KNOWLEDGE

ON THE SAUGEEN (BRUCE) PENINSULA


Now that our 2022 Forum has come and gone, we would like to express our appreciation for everyone involved. Everyone who attended, presented, sponsored, volunteered and helped us pull it all off. From the setup and take down, food and dishes – THANK YOU!

Keep your eye on our website, and the local paper, as we put together a forum follow-up. We will gather any materials we can and make them available for you – like this message from Zoe, one of the plaintiffs in Ecojustice’s Youth Climate Legal Case.

On May 9, 2022, the Municipality of Northern Bruce Peninsula Council approved the Climate Change Action Plan prepared by the citizen advisory committee. This is a great step forward! While there are lots of climate change plans out there, this one is very succinct and focused on very doable, measurable actions that the Municipality and local citizens can take. The Committee will continue its work, adding to the plan over time and encouraging action.

The Sources of Knowledge Forum is intended to demonstrate how research in Bruce Peninsula National Park, Fathom Five National Marine Park, the surrounding community, and beyond can contribute to knowledge and understanding of the Saugeen-Bruce Peninsula.

In an effort to further the Sources of Knowledge goal to encourage and enable youth to be stewards of this remarkable place, we also administer an annual Student Bursary Award in partnership with Parks Canada. This bursary program has allowed us to help local students finance their post-secondary education, in areas of conservation and related themes, to work toward a prospective career with Parks Canada.

Our SoK Talk initiative aims to provide ongoing opportunities, outside of the Forum, to share knowledge on a wide variety of special interest topics. Subjects from the past, present, and future that help propagate continuous learning and understanding of the Peninsula and its people.

We acknowledge that SoK operates on the Territory of the Anishinabek Nation: The People of the Three Fires known as Ojibway, Odawa, and Pottawatomie Nations. And we further give thanks to the Chippewas of Saugeen, and the Chippewas of Nawash, known collectively as the Saugeen Ojibway Nation, as the traditional keepers of this land.
