University of Oregon Climate Change and Indigenous Peoples Lecture
April 9 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
The 2021 Climate Change and Indigenous Peoples Lecture will take place virtually on April 9, 2021, from 12:00 – 1:30 pm Pacific as part of the Environmental Justice Pathways Summit. We look forward to welcoming Environmental, Cultural and Human Rights Advocate Sheila Watt-Cloutier. Register here: https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_hnF8txTNSLORaxuDU–5LQ.
IMAGINING A WAY FORWARD. By creating a meaningful and accessible narrative of complex processes, Sheila will tie in the connections between Inuit history/culture, environmental degradation, human trauma/planet trauma as one, climate change and human rights for all humanity. She will also link the current pandemic to climate change and help guide us to re-imagine a way forward through personal transformation and spirited leadership. “The pandemic has given a pause, a time to reflect on new possibilities. It is a time to shift from apathy to empathy and see how we are all inter-connected. What happens in the Arctic affects us all.”
