Locaiton: Outside Lappia Hall

Date: Thursday October 11, 2018

Time: 10:30-12:30

Join Arctic youth and Indigenous leaders in the lavvu as they present observations of Arctic change and reflect on solutions for the sustainable use of protected areas. This lavvu dialogue is based on the Nomadic herder concept, where Indigenous peoples, scientists, youth and politicians conduct a dialogue. Indigenous youth will prepare a statement focusing on Indigenous perspectives (e.g. the values of biodiversity, knowledge gaps, needs for protection, participation). The dialogue will also touch upon  Indigenous knowledge, and samples of Arctic Indigenous food will be served.

Chairs: Svein Mathiesen, International Centre for Reindeer Husbandry; Kathrine Johnsen, GRID Arendal; Gunn-Britt Retter, Saami Council

Format: open dialogue
