The Rockies Institute (TRI)

Based in Canmore, in the Rocky Mountains of Canada, The Rockies Institute (TRI) is focusing work on rural and indigenous people, and people living in mountain and northern communities, which are particularly vulnerable to climate change symptoms. Through education and knowledge building workshops, TRI helps communities and businesses navigate information and options related to climate change solutions.
In 2017, TRI is working on “Building Climate Resilience & Adaptation with the Kainai First Nation” helping to develop Tribal capacity to prepare for and cope with climate change effects on Tribal livelihoods, health, and ecological resources. The outcomes from the project are going to be shared at COP 22 in Morocco and regionally at the Crown of the Continent roundtable in Canada. A comparative project with South African Parks is currently being formed.
TRI is also a member of a circumpolar initiative on renewable energy.
