"Indigenous Communities: Promoting Social and Ecological Sustainability in the Face of Climate Change"
This is a closed meeting for a funded group of visiting scholars.
We propose a solutions-oriented workshop to bring together Indigenous and non-Indigenous researchers, practitioners, and policy-makers from Canada and the United States who work with Indigenous communities on climate change issues. We will address: (1) what are the social and ecological impacts observed and expected from climate change; (2) what capacities can help Indigenous communities address these impacts; and (3) what decision-making tools can augment capacity? Specifically, we are interested in ways that Indigenous communities might leverage the power of socio-environmental synthesis and big data to ensure their social and ecological sustainability in the face of climate change.
