Expanding perspectives in a global horizon for Northerners.




Embark on a reframing journey to connect and strengthen narratives that contribute to true global solidarity.

“As inequality and environmental degradation worsen, we search not only for alternative development models but also for alternatives to development itself.”

— Arturo Escobar

Alternatives to Development

We offer learning programs for NGOs, educators, policymakers, and young people interested in taking the steps needed to reframe their current approach to international development. We believe that by challenging implicit paradigms and social structures, this is an offering meant to support those working towards global solidarity that embodies a plurality of world views.

Great storytelling begins with great storytellers. We support initiatives to develop technical and creative skills for emerging storytellers.

“Some of the sweetest stories of this era are yet to be heard by the world, and you my nieces and nephew hold them in your minds and hearts. Each one being honoured by the telling, the sharing with another human being, who also has a story to tell.

Storytelling Mentorships

Connect across cultures through the intimate power of stories, photos and film. A storytelling mentorship program for emerging storytellers who want to use their story as an advocacy tool for change.


Stories shape how we understand the world, our place in it, and our ability to change it. NCGC is proud to support filmmakers in their quest to tell their own stories and share them with the world.

Reconnection Vision

We recently supported filmmaker, Jared Dulac's production of the Yukon First Nations Climate Action Fellowship's film, on Reconnection, to tell the story of this unique program.


Great stories need to be heard (and seen). We curate multimedia exhibitions to invite audiences to explore the many worlds within our world, and the stories that bring them to life.

Northern Perspectives on the SDGs

A photography project with roots in the North - in 2019, NCGC asked nine photographers working across Canada’s three northern territories to characterize the Sustainable Development Goals through imagery and narration. Here is what they came up with.




Deepening compassion begins with shared experiences. We host gatherings of various kinds to exchange insights and explore worldviews.

Atlin Lake Gathering

In summer of 2022, NCGC joined a group of activists, academic, artists and elders from across Aotearoa (New Zealand) and Turtle Island (North America) to paddle, swim and share stories by firelight.


We support Northerns pursue opportunities to participate in global forums, from COP27 to the UN's Commission on the Status of Women.

NCGC holds special consultative status with the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and observer status with UNFCCC – COP.
