The biggest challenges facing rural communities in New Brunswick involve sustaining sources of clean and safe water, lands and air. A sustainable environment is under threat from different kinds of destructive resource extraction as well as extreme weather events related to climate change. Ensuring sustainable rural futures means working with Indigenous communities in the province. RAVEN partners include the UNB Mi’kmaq-Wolastoqey Centre and JEDI (Joint Economic Development Initiative), both organizations supporting Indigenous students and communities.
RAVEN is also building relationships and joining networks of other groups working on and concerned with environmental issues. We are using an intersectional lens with our research and practice. We find we could always do it better.
