This article highlights Yukon First Nations’ climate plan, called “Reconnection Vision,” which was written by a group of Indigenous youth, including Ryan Kyikavichik. The plan emphasizes the need for a deeper approach to climate action, focusing on reconnection with oneself, others, and the land. It aims to address the root causes of climate change and shift approaches to health, housing, food, energy, economics, governance, and education. The plan was developed over two years and is intended to guide individual First Nations’ climate adaptation plans to create a better future for the next generation and protect the land.
