CHAMPIONS FOR CHANGE (C4C) is an Indigenous education conference focussed on reciprocity, Indigenous sustainability, and closing knowledge gaps pertaining to Indigenous Peoples in Canada. The conference originated in 2013 and has become an integral part of SNP’s signature education conference series.

The theme of this year’s conference is Honouring Connections: Exploring Notions of Indigenous Sustainability. C4C 2018 provides an opportunity for Indigenous leaders, learners, educators and institutions in support of education to consider the connections we have to the environment, the natural world and one another through the lens of the Haudenosaunee Thanksgiving Address.
