Climate Change and the Importance of Indigenous Knowledge

Indigenous/native communities have for centuries created and applied approaches to climate change and developed their own climate sciences, which are often overlooked or treated as inferior to modern mainstream science. This lack of attention given to the critical contribution of indigenous climate knowledge and spiritualities continues to promote a one-sided narrative. 

This webinar aims to open a new perspective by examining climate change in the Pacific as an example of how interfaith dialogue with indigenous spiritualities might promote environmental justice. It will also highlight how indigenous/native knowledge and spiritualities can assist in critically informing national and global climate strategies and climate policies, more specifically looking into the radical approaches indigenous communities can offer to the COP28 meeting.
