Protecting our Planet, Protecting our Children: An Indigenous Vision for Intergenerational Health Symposium
Protecting our Planet to Protect our Children: An Indigenous Vision for Intergenerational Health Symposium is an innovative event designed to bring together experts, scholars, community leaders and activists from Indigenous backgrounds and beyond. This interdisciplinary gathering will be a platform for sharing knowledge, and experiences on various aspects of health that impact Indigenous communities with a focus on the interdependence of our children, families, and our planet’s natural systems. Together we will create a framework for understanding, collaboration, and action.
