This panel brings Candis Callison and Deborah McGregor, two distinguished Indigenous researchers and communicators, into conversation about our planet’s future and how Indigenous knowledge and ways of knowing can make the threat our planet faces from climate change, and ways of confronting it, matter to broader publics both inside and outside the university.
