Ocean Science Together - by ECOP Canada


The UN Ocean Decade and Reconciliation: it is time to transform the way countries such as Canada approach our relationship with the Ocean, bringing together all perspectives, especially those of Indigenous Peoples who have drawn sustenance from the ocean for thousands of years without compromising the integrity of its ecosystem.

This is why ECOP Canada is proud to bring this important conversation on Ocean Science Together with Alexandra Anaviapik to early career ocean professionals across Canada and the world.

Alexandra Anaviapik is a self-taught Inuk artist and Inuit Cultural educator from Pond Inlet, Nunavut, in Canada's Arctic. She is an explorer and a powerful advocate for her community and beliefs. As a member of ECOP Canada’s Advisory Board, she has provided important guidance for the development of Canada's regional node with respect to the meaningful integration of Indigenous perspectives.

However, we still have loads to learn! Alex has kindly offered to share her insights and recommendations with the larger ECOP community regarding effective communication skills and making space for the purposeful inclusion of Indigenous people as we work together for the Ocean We Want.

We invite you to join this webinar on Wednesday, June 28th at 1:00 pm EDT / 10:00 am PDT.

This event is taking place on Zoom.
The event will only be available in English
