All Projects

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.

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.

COP 27 Egypt

NCGC supported Carissa Waugh, a citizen of the Taku River Tlingit First Nation, to join other global climate activists at the 2022 COP27 Climate Change Conference in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt.

Citizen Journalism

This immersive learning program gave emerging storytellers the opportunity to learn elements of journalism and use these skills to work with journalists in the Kingdom of Eswatini. Four women from the Yukon worked closely with local journalists and non-profit organizations, to tell stories of gender equality. The program was halted due to Covid but, like the rest of the world, we quickly shifted to working on global storytelling initiatives online.

International Internships for Indigenous Youth

The International Internships for Indigenous Youth program was a 5-year initiative (2018 - 2023) of NCGC in partnership with the Atlantic Council for International Cooperation (ACIC). The program saw close to 60 youth aged 18 - 35 take part in three-month internships in one of five countries: Kenya, Cambodia, Costa Rica, Nepal or Guyana. During covid, youth were able to virtually work with host country organizations. We anticipate this program to be offered again in the near future!

Listening and Learning

We have had the pleasure of hosting many activists over the years - François Paulette, Ivan Coyote, Gwynne Dyer, Alaa Murabit and more. They have moved us to action, shifted our thinking and inspired us to make a difference.

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.

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.
