As Indigenous Peoples, we make great contributions to the conservation of wildlife and biodiversity, and we own land that is rich in minerals, essential to the energy transition. For these reasons, the SIRGE Coalition seeks to increase Indigenous leadership and make our voices heard by governments and companies involved in this process. We speak to the Executive Director of First Peoples Worldwide, Kate Finn.

As the world's demand for minerals needed for green and renewable technologies increases, the SIRGE Coalition calls on governments, decision-makers, businesses, and corporations to avoid making the mistakes of the past and to protect the rights and self-determination of Indigenous Peoples.
