Pathways Forum #14 When Western meets Indigenous in Sustainability Science, from theory to practice – Part 2

Let’s continue to explore the dynamics of coloniality and inclusivity in Research! When Western meets Indigenous in Sustainability Science is a unique two-part webinar co-organized with the Ocean Knowledge Action Network and the Tapei Hub of Future Earth.

Part 2 aims to provide space for an open discussion where Indigenous scholars can share their stories and the challenges they are confronted with when working within Western institutions. Non-Indigenous scholars can gain a deeper understanding of how to create more equal and reciprocal academic environments. This raises questions about the role and positionality of both Indigenous and non-Indigenous researchers in the decolonization process.


The Pathways Forum is a bi-monthly online event where researchers from diverse disciplines who engage, or want to engage, with societal actors in processes of adaptive learning to design, implement, and evaluate pathways to sustainability get a chance to reflect on concepts and theories of change, and discuss the practical implications of sustainability science and transdisciplinarity for research practices. Through this webinar series, the Pathways Initiative aims to develop and support agenda-setting, synthesis and capacity building around pathways for sustainability.
