Description of the webinar content
APECS Polar Week Panel Discussion: Working in Collaboration with Indigenous People and the Role of Traditional Knowledge in Northern Research
Twice a year, APECS organizes the International Polar Week. This spring it was from March 20-26, 2017. Polar Week is a series of international events with the goal of promoting the science that takes place in polar latitudes, and educating the public about all things polar. The theme of this year's Polar Week is “People of the Poles: Human Use and Appreciation of Earth’s Polar Regions.” On the spring equinox we are hosting an online panel discussion to discuss the nuances, challenges, and successes of working in collaboration with Indigenous people and the role of Traditional Knowledge in northern research.
Details: Tuesday, March 21, 16:00 - 18:00 GMT
