Interconnected: Exploring Indigenous Perspectives on Earth Matters

Did you know that British Columbia's natural ecosystem is one of the most biologically diverse regions in Canada and is home to over half of the country's mammal and plant species? This diverse biodiversity contributes to ecological resilience, making BC a globally important region for conservation efforts.

Indigenous communities have stewarded these lands for millennia, maintaining a significant relationship with the natural world. Many Indigenous practices, such as sustainable resource management and knowledge of ecological environments, continue to shape conservation efforts and land-use planning in the province.

Join us at our next Science World Spotlights for a thought-provoking panel discussion in recognition of Indigenous People's Day in Canada. Inspired by our new feature gallery Earth Matters: Rethink the Future, this event aimed at an adult audience delves into the rich interrelations of Indigenous knowledge on environmental stewardship, sustainability and the interconnectedness of the natural world.

Highlights Include:

  • Expert Panel: Through insightful presentations and conversation, we'll uncover the profound connections between Indigenous worldviews and contemporary environmental challenges.
  • Mix and Mingle: Following the panel discussion, join us for a reception where attendees can mingle, network, and continue the conversation with panelists and fellow participants.
  • Visit the Exhibit: Through Earth Matters: Rethink the Future you can explore our changing planet through a different lens, immerse yourself in incredible ecosystems and learn how the smallest of actions can have a big impact on our natural world.

Reserve your ticket to this Science World Spotlight today and be part of this transformative conversation!
