Northern Webinar Series
Considering Indigenous Led Observation/ Monitoring Networks
Community-based observer networks have made significant advancement in the last two decades in the global north. These networks have been launched for a number of reasons: from the response to ecosystem-level shifts driven by rapid climate change to land use planning activities. They can be based on western science (i.e., citizen science), Indigenous knowledge, or through a co-production of knowledge approach that equitably brings together both knowledge systems. With academia and agencies beginning to recognize the value of Indigenous knowledge and perspectives, more of these networks in Alaska, Canada and Greenland are looking to find ways to transition to monitoring efforts in partnership with, or led by Indigenous peoples of the North. Featured speakers are Elizabeth Liske, Raychelle Daniel, Peter Pulsifer and the facilitator, Heather McGray.
