Taking place at the same time, and in the margins of, the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (UNPFII18), the Tracking Change Global Knowledge Symposium brings together academic and community researchers from across three countries, seven academic institutions and sixty local and Indigenous communities and organizations. These project participants and champions are meeting to share results, discuss good practice and plan a path for ongoing research.
We invite interested attendees of the UNPFII18, and others, to join us on the afternoon of Thursday May 2nd, to learn more about our project, share stories, exchange ideas and plan for the future.
