How can we reconnect with Indigenous knowledge in order to accelerate social and ecological transition?
We’ve said again and again that we must listen to science in order to address the urgency and devastating scale of climate change. But what can science learn from ancestral Indigenous knowledge, whose solutions to environmental upheaval have endured over the course of millennia?
Taking this paradox as a starting point—on the one hand, the impact of climate change on vulnerable populations, and, on the other, the demonstrated resilience of Indigenous land—Raccords asks how we might foster convergence between our respective knowledge systems and amplify our collective efforts to transform the social and ecological landscapes.
