In recognizing the social and spiritual roots of the current global environmental crisis, we will gather to engage people with original teachings as medicine for restoring our sacred relationships with life, land, air and water. The conference goal is to create pathways for transformative action by honouring our diverse roles and shared responsibilities through knowledge collaboration across disciplines and traditions. The conference will empower participants by rebalancing principles, values, and revitalizing practices for the continuation and strengthening all Life.
This conference, the first of its kind in North America, will focus on bringing together Indigenous teachings and Traditional Knowledge with a specific focus on addressing complex environmental challenges. Conference participants will be engaged in keynote addresses, workshops, panel discussions, plenary sessions and break out action groups to learn from Indigenous Knowledge Holders and develop plans for addressing environmental issues. Re-igniting the Sacred Power of Creation will bring together Indigenous and non-Indigenous thinkers in the environment sector, Youth and Elders to create a unique dynamic not often experienced at academic conferences.
