Learning and Doing: Education and Adaptation through Diverse Ways of Knowing

The workshop was held at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, Colorado on June, 29 – July, 1 2015.

The Rising Voices workshops facilitate cross-cultural approaches for adaptation solutions to climate variability and change. Diverse participants attend the workshops – Indigenous leaders, Indigenous and non-Indigenous environmental experts, students, and scientific professionals, including representatives from tribal, local, state, and federal resource management agencies, academia, tribal colleges, and research organizations.

The Rising Voices 3 workshop moves our shared discussion forward by focusing on topics to support learning about and action for on-the-ground climate adaptation:

  • Scientific-Indigenous partnerships in support of in-situ adaptation and community-led relocation in response to climate variability and change
  • Education curricula and student engagement in support of youth and early-career leadership on climate issues, and
  • Ways to appropriately evaluate the success of scientific-Indigenous collaborations, including considerations of cultural knowledge and protocols.
