The Charlton Sustainability Hub
Revitalizing Rural Communities in Northern Ontario
Who We Are
The Northern Ontario Center for Sustainable Development Co-Op and Keepers of the Circle have formed the Charlton Sustainability Hub to bring this dream to life. Together we can build a new quality of life using traditional Indigenous knowledge, and contemporary Western knowledge together, in an inter-cultural space.
Our mission is to build capacity in a low-carbon economy to adapt to the challenges and opportunities faced by the climate crisis. The Charlton Sustainability Hub will facilitate cross-community and cross-sector interactions at the site and via the virtual hub. Through skill and knowledge collaboration, the Charlton Sustainability Hub will be a catalyst for change-- and the agent that attracts people to future-focused living within their planetary boundaries for the benefit of the next generations to come.
Our Pillars of Expertise
Reversing Youth Out-Migration
Accelerating careers, community support, net-zero living, identifying economic opportunities in climate adaptation and affordable living opportunities for youth entering the work force.
We acknowledge that the Charlton Sustainability Hub is located on traditional Algonquin Anishinabeg Territory, with territorial assertions from Métis Nation and Wabun First Nations on the lands upon which the Hub operates. We recognize the Robinson-Huron Treaty of 1850 and respect claims to land and title whereupon the lands that we occupy as a settler entity. In this, we strive for an environment of inclusivity, respect and honouring of all world-views.
