Weston Roundtable – The Value of Global Indigenous Knowledge in Planetary Health
Speaker: Nicole Redvers, Assistant Professor, Family and Community Medicine-INMED, School of Medicine and Health Sciences, University of North Dakota
Indigenous peoples are resilient peoples who have honorably carried deep ecological knowledge over thousands of years. With wider planetary health movements taking hold, this presentation emphasizes the importance of ensuring a grounding in the stewardship practices, the relationship building, and the innate sense of reciprocity embodied in traditional Indigenous knowledges and values around the globe.
The Weston Roundtable is made possible by a generous donation from Roy F. Weston, a highly accomplished UW-Madison alumnus. Designed to promote a robust understanding of sustainability science, engineering, and policy, these interactive lectures are co-sponsored by the Center for Sustainability and the Global Environment (SAGE), the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, and the Office of Sustainability.
