Join Elders and Cultural Helpers as they demonstrate a circle of sharing, as a potential pedagogical technique, focused on climate change. Elders and Cultural Helpers will share stories that deepen our understanding of climate change, as well as wisdom and lived experience on how climate change is affecting Indigenous communities. The circle will close with their reflections on what all of our roles are in the path forward for a healthy planet.
