Resource Date:

Hosting effective online community events and meetings in rural, remote, and Indigenous Communities can be challenging. From tools and technology to logistics and engagement, this toolkit was created to help you address some of the most common virtual meeting barriers and opportunities. This toolkit was prepared by Amanda Sheedy, with support from Nature United, and in collaboration with a small group of Indigenous Community-based leaders interested in learning and brainstorming how to better engage their communities virtually during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The toolkit is the result of three workshops that drew on the wisdom and experience of participants. These tools are offered as suggestions and support for your work and should not be considered a prescription for how to host your meetings or community engagement. They are offered humbly as part of the ongoing journey we are all on as we learn to work online together
