Claiming Our Place: Women & Resource Development in the North This short video reveals some of the process behind the Claiming Our Place project, which brought local women from Happy Valley - Goose Bay together to creatively explore the connection between local women and the local natural environment. The project specifically examined the potential implications to these diverse women's wellbeing given the hydroelectric dam development taking place at nearby Muskrat Falls. They also created tools to help women better participate in community discussions about the dam development, from which they were normally excluded.
