Recording of the “Planetary Health and Collective Wisdom” Webinar that took place 5 December 2022.

How can we weave together collective wisdom, Two-Eyed Seeing, and digital age transformations for planetary health?

This webinar builds on discussions during a panel session entitled “We Are All River People: Wisdom in the Tidal Wake of Planetary Health” held at the International Leadership Association Global Conference in October, 2022. Following on from this session, the webinar features exchanges between global experts around ensuring that the planetary health movement is founded in step with collective wisdom and Two-Eyed Seeing. Discussions revolve around three interwoven themes:

  1. Speakers explore the role of Indigenous Knowledge and Science and collective intelligence in weaving new narratives that uplift reconciliation, rights, and responsibilities in the context of planetary health.
  2. Speakers discuss deepening global leadership and employing integral frameworks that strive to connect between consciousness, behaviour, culture, and systems.
  3. Speakers relate these threads to the Digital Age transformations underway, exploring among other things the role of education and participatory action research in leveraging the power of digital technologies for a flourishing planet and thriving communities.

The Planetary Health and Collective Wisdom project was supported by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).

Future Earth Canada and Sustainability in the Digital Age would like to acknowledge the Fonds de Recherche du Québec (FRQ) for core operational support that has complemented project funding.
