Converging Voices: Building relationships and practices for intercultural science

The 7th annual workshop of Rising Voices: Climate Resilience through Indigenous and Earth Sciences was held at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado from 15-17 May, 2019.

Rising Voices facilitates intercultural approaches for understanding and adapting to extreme weather and climate events, variability, and change. It is a vibrant network of Indigenous and Western scientific professionals, tribal and community leaders, environmental and communication experts, students, educators, and artists from across the US and around the world. At its core, Rising Voices aims to advance science through collaborations that bring Indigenous and Earth (atmospheric, social, biological, ecological) sciences into partnership, supports adaptive and resilient communities through sharing scientific capacity, and provides opportunities for Indigenous students and early career scientists through scientific and community mentoring.

The theme of the 7th Annual Workshop was “Converging Voices: Building relationships and practices for intercultural science.” Through facilitated group discussions, plenary sessions, and active participation, we will collectively engage together to address the following key questions:

  • What does intercultural research collaboration look like in practice?
  • What are the appropriate steps on the path to intercultural collaboration?
  • How can the elements of intercultural collaboration be put into practice?
