We were successfully able to hold a major international conference, "Rhythms of the Land: Indigenous Knowledge, Science, and Thriving Together in a Changing Climate" on the Cornell campus, October 11-13, 2021, after many delays.
The conference ended with a series of workshops on the following topics:
- Practical policy implication of Ecological Calendars? (e.g., application in other regions, peace building and climate migration)
- How can this knowledge be dynamic, updated and transferred to the next generation (e.g., environmental education and STEM curriculum)?
- What are the next steps for further research? (e.g., developing strategies for new ecological indicators)
