Pathways Forum #13 - When Western meets Indigenous in Sustainability Science, from theory to practice - Part 1

The webinar is organized in collaboration with the Ocean KAN and Future Earth Taipei Hub, and is a continuation of the Decolonizing Sustainability Science series.

This first session, titled "What do scientists need to know before and when working with Indigenous communities?", will spotlight reflections from the perspective of those with direct experience of living or working with Indigenous communities.

We will discuss what it means to ethically engage with Indigenous knowledge holders and how to navigate our responsibilities to develop reciprocal relationships with these communities in ways that do not perpetuate extractive, colonial frameworks.
