Protecting the Earth: Indigenous Solutions to the Climate Crisis

Updated: Nov 26, 2021

Climate change affects everyone and all aspects of the human existence, from food security, health, and housing to the economy, governance, mobility, and gender relations. The impact is disproportionately felt in the Global South, especially by indigenous communities and those who primarily rely on agriculture for their livelihoods. For example, indigenous peoples occupy around 28% of the world's land but are protectors of around 80% of its remaining biodiversity. In this episode of #DearWorldLive, activists discuss the lessons our global community can learn from native knowledge and practices to fight against climate change. Featured speakers are Sacred Earth Solar founder Melina Laboucan-Massimo (Lubicon Cree from Northern Alberta, Canada) and author Tyson Yunkaporta (Apalech clan from Far North Queensland, Australia).
