Rising Together: Mobilizing and Learning from Local Actions

 11-13 APRIL, 2018


The 6th annual workshop of Rising Voices: Collaborative Science with Indigenous Knowledge for Climate Solutions will be held in Duluth, Minnesota from 11-13 April, 2018.  
 
The theme of the 6th Rising Voices workshop is “Rising Together: Mobilizing and Learning from Local Actions.” The theme reflects the meeting objectives which will be to: 
 
• Review what we have learned from previous Rising Voices gatherings  
• Mobilize diverse knowledge systems toward appropriate climate solutions  
• Learn from local partners and actions in the Great Lakes area 
 
Rising Voices seeks to diversify scientific research and inform culturally appropriate solutions to weather and climate extremes with a focus on Indigenous science. The sixth workshop will be an opportunity to reflect on lessons learned and best practices for collaboration between Indigenous and Western sciences gleaned from the first five years of Rising Voices. Convening in Duluth, Minnesota is also an opportunity to expand our conversations and learn from local partners in the Great Lakes Area. 
 
We anticipate a high level of interest in the 6th Rising Voices workshop and space is limited. We will do our best to invite as many people as possible representing diverse geographic regions, tribal affiliations, and different occupational positions. Everyone MUST apply to be invited for full participation.
