Climate change and ecological degradation are challenges with impacts at all scales, from local to global. Mitigation, adaptation, management and rethinking carbon-heavy ways of life and “business as usual” will require creative tactics, solutions, and worldviews. As Indigenous knowledge keepers, advocates, activists, scholars, and key contemporary voices, Indigenous women are integral to finding new ways forward. In this panel, we listen, learn, and discuss insights they can offer for improved environmental stewardship.

The Natural Resources and Environmental Studies Institute (NRESi) at UNBC hosts a weekly lecture series at the Prince George campus. Anyone from the university or wider community with interest in the topic area is welcome to attend. Presentations are also made available to remote participants through Livestream (Channel 1).
