What is SES?
Food. Shelter. Energy. Economy.
What does it take to be sustainable? To build security? To create sovereignty?
Skeena Energy Solutions, a project by the Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition, is a grass-roots initiative aimed at supporting alternative energy options that are suited to northern contexts, will sustain northern cultures, build local economies, and protect the watersheds we depend on for the long term.
This initiative was launched in late 2013 as a result of several proposals for gas and oil pipelines that would put our wild salmon economy and healthy watersheds at risk. Rather than just opposing bad development, SWCC decided to propose good development.
Over the years, our focuses have followed community direction. We now work with a diverse collection of partners, funders, organizations, and individuals to localize our food, shelter, energy, and economy projects.
