As part of the Claiming Our Place project in Happy Valley - Goose Bay, local women used social media to connect and discuss their concerns about the Lower Churchill hydroelectric dam project. Their concerns, which were not receiving coverage in the mainstream media, were gathered to share with those involved with the dam development. Findings from this social media project were also presented at the ArcticNet 2014 Conference in Ottawa.
