Sustaining All Life & United to End Racism at Climate Week
Saturday, September 26
21:00 – 22:30 BST
Indigenous people, as the original people, have always known that we humans are connected to each other and to the Earth. Since ancient times we have maintained traditional practices that enhance our humanity. We know that it is natural to have feelings and to express them. Our traditional practices include healing from hurtful experiences by listening to each other and sharing our stories.
In this forum, Indigenous people from around the world will share how our people, our land, and our existence are impacted by the climate emergency and how we are organizing to stop it. It is an opportunity to learn from the personal experiences of people who are the most impacted by environmental destruction and the climate emergency.
At intervals during the forum, participants will take turns listening to each other in pairs. In this way, everyone will have a chance to process what they have heard, tell their own story, and express any feelings they have about the climate crisis. Sharing like this can be a powerful way to strengthen our resolve, commitment, and activism.
All are welcome to attend. Indigenous people are invited to sign-up in advance if they would like to speak (speaking times are limited).
(Saturday) 9:00 pm - 10:30 pm
