All My Relations Webinar
Indigenous peoples around the Earth deeply understand the interwoven relationships between all beings. Indigenous Elders speak of the individual and collective responsibility we all have to be in a healthy and reciprocal relationship with the Earth. This is more important now than any time in history. As we witness and experience the impacts of a climate crisis, governments and corporations move slowly to make any change. Indigenous people only make up about 5% of the world's population. Yet they protect 80% of the world's biodiversity.
In this webinar, Carolynne Crawley, will focus upon breaking down colonial and capitalistic ways of thinking and behaviours that separate people from the Earth to create an opportunity for reflection and individual change. She will share Indigenous perspectives that guide people to build responsible and reciprocal relations with the lands, waters, and all beings.
