Why bridging traditional knowledge and environmental science matters

posted in: Concepts 0

In the Collective, we endeavour to bridge Indigenous and Western science knowledge systems i.e. maintain the integrity of each knowledge system while creating spaces for a two-way exchange of understanding for mutual learning. We do this by recognising multiple epistemologies – the underlying values and beliefs – in environmental management and governance, by using a diverse range of methods and processes, and by connecting across spatial and temporal scales for collective action.
