Climate Change and Health Adaptation: Working with BC First Nations Webinar
January 21, 2020 from 12 - 1:30 pm PST
Stories we tell and the way we frame problems influence the outcomes of our projects. The goal of this presentation, led by Paivi Abernethy of the First Nations Health Authority, is to provide a more nuanced picture of climate change and health adaptation than usually is discussed, emphasizing especially aspects that First Nations tend to pay more attention to. The webinar will introduce a systems approach to climate change impacts on health and highlight the role of sustainable environmental governance in addressing climate health challenges, together with BC examples of contemporary Indigenous climate leadership. This more systemic approach to climate health will hopefully inspire new innovative intersectoral thinking in climate adaptation approaches and also help facilitate collaborative work with BC First Nations.
