Indigenous Knowledge & Western Science: Collaboration, Relationship, and Climate Solutions

The Global Council for Science and the Environment & The Land Peace Foundation invite you to view the Online Learning Series "Indigenous Knowledge & Western Science: Collaboration, Relationship, and Climate Solutions", which was hosted virtually between April-June, 2021. Please stay tuned for updates regarding our upcoming series in the fall.

Learning from one another and building relationships across Indigenous and non-indigenous knowledge systems and communities is an ongoing journey. This series was structured to continue the discussions and collective learning that our network started at the NCSE Drawdown 2021 Conference in January, and to inspire our next steps together.

In this series, participants are invited to widen the lens through which they view science, decision-making and climate solutions. The first sessions of this series focus on the history and present of the colonial apparatus, as well as different knowledge systems and why they are important to understand. Later sessions helped participants reflect on the nature of relationships and develop meaningful, balanced & ethical partnerships.
