Indigenous communities make up less than 5% of the world’s population yet are responsible for protecting 80% of global biodiversity. These communities are at the forefront of the climate movement and feel the impacts of nature’s degradation the most. Today, with the COVID-19 pandemic, global biodiversity loss at an all-time high in many places, worsening and increasing natural disasters, Indigenous communities face unparalleled challenges. Join us for a conversation with leaders from around the world about the importance of Indigenous leadership, knowledge systems and practices in responding to the confluence of challenges the world is facing, critical decisions we need to make as a global community, and why they are optimistic about the survival of our planet and ourselves.
