Francesca and Matthew will provide us with an introduction to Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) technologies, and opportunities for Pacific Northwest Tribal and non-Tribal communities to build economic initiatives to remove carbon from the environment and support the health and preservation of First Foods in the process. There will also be time for a community discussion of the information shared, and a chance for community members to share any concerns or interest they have about CDR technology and approaches.
