Living Lands and Indigenous Climate Solutions

Join Indigenous knowledge holders, Cheryl Bryce, Tiffany Joseph, Marilyn Olsen-Page and Judith Sayers for a special online University of Victoria (UVic) campus conversation on Indigenous approaches to climate solutions, sustainability and well-being. What does the living history of the lands and waters in around UVic tell us about traditional land-use, colonial impacts and the interdependence we share with these systems?

Learn how coastal peoples are addressing the challenges of climate change in their communities and the transformative opportunity of moving beyond ‘Territorial Acknowledgments’ to action that is grounded in our relationship to the land and our shared responsibility to its restoration and stewardship.

Facilitated by: Jeff Corntassel (Cherokee Nation), Associate Professor with the Indigenous Studies Program and Acting Director of the Centre for Indigenous Research and Community-Led Engagement (CIRCLE).

Deadline to register: February 22, 2021

This event is sponsored by the Climate Solutions Navigator (CSN) and is an accelerated action in support of UVic’s developing 22-26 Climate and Sustainability Action Plan. The CSN is co-led by the Office of the Vice-President Research and the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions with support from UVic’s Strategic Impact Fund.
