  3. Solutionogenics, Peace Athabasca Delta Institute Governance Structure, 2020

The communities of the Peace Athabasca Delta region (Mikisew Cree and Athabasca Chipewyan First Nations, Fort Chipewyan Métis Association) are deeply invested in protecting the Delta, and were a key force that led to the designation of the Wood Buffalo National park as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Together, they are working to establish the Delta Research Institute as a place where western and indigenous research in the Delta will be aligned and applied for greater impacts. SHIFT worked with the Solutionogenics team to design and facilitate 7 virtual Governance co-design sessions for the partners. The proposed structure is citizen driven and designed to support both individual and shared community/stakeholder interests while also strengthening harmony across communities and external (western) stakeholders/interests. It includes: vision, mission, values, a membership structure, a Board structure and core committee terms of reference (Elders, Youth and Research Councils).
