This series explores the future of human relationships with the natural world with contributions from disciplinaries in the arts, science and many wisdom keepers from indigenous traditions. These representatives from around the world offer new ways of looking at our climate solutions, shifting the paradigm towards community and the earth from their cultures of place, through stories and narratives.
From indigenous activists and youths to ecologists, scientists and wisdom elders, these vital voices and change makers speak from the heart and share inspiring ways we can to listen to the land. Looking towards indigenous science, wisdom and art, to move in a collective approach towards a vibrant future. The discussions celebrate what it means to be in relation to each other and the earth and the deep knowledge and wisdom of the indigenous people, that both nourishes and works with nature.
