The Gathering


January 18th-22nd, 2021



Indigenous Clean Energy (ICE) annually hosts a pinnacle event: The Gathering. This is not a conference. It is an intensely interactive retreat focused on how the ICE community takes things deeper, to catalyze more Indigenous clean energy impact.

Interact, Insight, Inspire 

These words guide the collaborative process of ICE Gatherings. This is an opportunity to the notion that as Indigenous communities, allies, and partners, we are all change agents advancing a clean energy future. Together we are creating a future that embodies energy democracy, Indigenous leadership, inclusive prosperity, Indigenous entrepreneurship, climate action, and ecological protection. 

In 2021, our ICE Gathering took place on a virtual stage 

Due to the global pandemic, we could not gather in person, but we successfully brought this inspiring event to over 700 registrants from across the country 

For five days, the ICE Team hosted more than 35 interactive sessions about clean energy. Our daily themes included:  

  • Bioenergy Generation
  • Off-Grid Diesel Reduction in Remote Communities 
  • Energy Efficiency in Indigenous Communities 
  • Career Pathways in Clean Energy for Indigenous Youth 
  • Global Microgrids 
  • Indigenous Clean Energy Economic Development & Social Impacts  
  • Indigenous Culture and Worldviews
