CICan Webinar June 9: Where Indigenous Education and Sustainability Intersect

Wednesday, June 9, 2021 at 12:00 pm EST in English

Implementing the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples in Canada means establishing a road map for lasting reconciliation, and education is often at the centre. For colleges and institutes, that means finding a balance between culturally relevant and accessible programming for Indigenous populations and strategies that enrich mainstream learning models with traditional knowledge. But in many ways, education is also about the long-term sustainability of Indigenous communities.

If sustainability means leaving no one behind, how can we ensure equitable access to post-secondary education for Indigenous populations remains top of mind? How can traditional knowledge be scaled to influence sustainable policy and in what ways must our educational models be changed?

In this episode of Perspectives LIVE, our expert guests will explore where and how Indigenous education and sustainability intersect.
