Lewis Archer has been with Save the Children since 2017. He has held several positions within Save the Children’s National Reconciliation Program, an Indigenous and child rights program supporting Indigenous communities and organizations. When Lewis moved to Canada from the UK, he was astonished to see the historical and ongoing injustices faced by Indigenous communities. This propelled him to use his existing climate change background to work in partnership with First Nation, Inuit and Metis communities across Turtle Island, with a focus on reconciliation and climate change issues. Lewis has spearheaded numerous climate change initiatives within international development organizations focused on children. He also authored peer-reviewed papers on climate change in Nunavut and co-authored a chapter in a book that explores the connection between mental health and climate change for First Nation children in Manitoba.
