The People’s Clean Energy Declaration for Haida Gwaii
September 29-30, 2018 were historic days in Gaw. Over 100 Haida Gwaiians gathered at the Old Massett hall to connect, learn, and share information on our electrical systems today. Together, we started to carve out what our clean energy future will look like.
Local governments have all endorsed this Clean Energy Declaration, and Island citizens signed this pledge committing to energy sovereignty by 2023.

Promoting & protecting social and environmental diversity on Haida Gwaii
Swiilawiid Sustainability Society is a place-based not-for-profit doing research and communications on Haida Gwaii. We work to inspire local residents to take meaningful action and reduce our collective carbon footprint. Project 0% Diesel is our sole focus at this time, and the name says it all: We want to see Haida Gwaii lead in the transition to clean, community-owned power. Renewable energy is key to both maintaining the Islands’ reputation as strong environmental stewards and taking meaningful action on climate change.
As local residents, we are proud stewards of the land and sea and we’re committed to working with our friends and neighbours to reduce our carbon footprint.
