Plenary: Culturally Relevant, Community Guided, and Scientifically Informed—Setting a Vision for Action
Tue. 8:30 to 10:00 a.m. MDT
The second step to advancing active hope is to identify what direction we want the world to move in or the values we want to see expressed in our communities. This session will feature speakers that have established a clear vision for transcending the boundaries that often separate science from society. The Rising Voices Center for Indigenous and Earth Sciences works to achieve culturally relevant and scientifically robust climate and weather actions through intercultural, relational, and collaborative work that brings together Indigenous knowledges and sciences with Earth sciences in a respectful and inclusive manner. Panelists will discuss ways to elevate the innovative solutions needed to activate hope for Indigenous and other communities that face the disproportionate toll of disaster.
