First Project Conference in Christchurch
Academics, researchers, and experts from many ocean states in the Pacific met in Christchurch on 1-2 September 2022 to discuss how to address the climate crisis through Indigenous knowledge systems. The participants of the conference have been extensively and intensively studying how the climate crisis has been framed and approached. They also identified potential solutions for restoring ecological balance and empowering local communities.
The project, funded by the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT), is a partnership between the University of South Pacific (USP) and the University of Canterbury (UC).
