Indigenous Data Sovereignty
4 July 2022 18:00 - 19:30
Indigenous Data Sovereignty: Bringing Māori Knowledge to Climate Change Research – seminar in English
On 4 July, we have a new opportunity in-person at the Espai Societat Oberta to learn first-hand how indigenous traditions and knowledge can help us to understand the consequences of climate change from a different perspective.
For this event, we will have the participation of Maui Hudson, an interdisciplinary researcher and associate professor at the Te Kotahi Research Institute at the University of Waikato (New Zealand). His work is based on the application of traditional knowledge of the Maori community in areas as wide-ranging as new technologies, health, the environment and innovation.
He will help us to understand the rights and interests of his people in terms of data and the different visions that this knowledge can bring to the fight against urgent issues such as climate change.
Adrien Tofighi-Niaki is project coordinator of the Local Indicators of Climate Change Impacts Observation Network (LICCI-ON) at the Institute of Environmental Science and Technology of the Autonomous University of Barcelona, which has been applying the principles of indigenous data sovereignty in the context of climate change research and environmental management.
