EUC Keynote Event: Indigenous Knowing and Climate Futures
As part of the open programming at Congress 2023, the Faculty of Environmental and Urban Change (EUC) is hosting a keynote panel titled “Indigenous Knowing and Climate Futures” on May 31st from 3-5pm at the Tribute Communities Recital Hall, Accolade East Building.
Co-sponsored by UBC’s Centre for Climate Justice, and the Environmental Studies Association of Canada, this event inaugurates a new Climate Seminar series at EUC for 2023-24. The climate crisis—especially when broadly conceived—is undoubtedly the most urgent issue of our times. Universities are often slow to respond to such urgencies, but they have a critical role to play in addressing climate crisis as both sites of knowledge production and spaces where multiple constituencies can meet to imagine and make change together. EUC hopes to do its part in this process by bringing scholars and activists working on this critical problem to York on a regular basis.
This event will be held both in person and on Zoom. Candis Callison and Deborah McGregor, two distinguished Indigenous researchers and communicators, will speak about how Indigenous knowledges can make the threat of climate change and strategies of confronting it matter to broader publics. Award-winning author and activist Naomi Klein will respond.
