WGIFS 2020 Vision - Rooted in Indigenous Ecological Knowledgea and Social Justice

As we enter 2020, facing a complex web of existential crises defined by climate change, capitalism and colonial rule, an Indigenous lens is ever more critical to understanding the interwoven strategies we need to untangle our children’s futures.
To be able to look into the future with 20/20 vision, we need to learn from our past, and centering Indigenous ecological knowledge, wisdom and values (IEK) will allow us the clearest line of sight for tackling, and adapting to the storms, floods, fires, and droughts headed our way. IEK – humanity’s oldest living memories, would also be our best guide for a much-needed just transition towards a regenerative economy that serves to heal, restore and revitalize our lives, lands and food systems.
