Pathways Forum: Nicole Redvers & Jonathan Rose on Bridging Indigenous Systems and Modern Science

Join us on Tuesday, September 27th at 12:00 p.m. ET in conversation with Nicole Redvers, co-founder of the Arctic Indigenous Wellness Foundation, author of The Science of the Sacred: Bridging Global Indigenous Medicine Systems and Modern Scientific Principles, and faculty at the University of North Dakota. Nicole and Garrison Institute co-founder Jonathan F.P. Rose will discuss including indigenous voices in planetary health and the common good.

This is the Third of our Pathways to Planetary Health (PPH) Forum Summer 2022 series and focuses on the Common Good pathway. The Common Good is the underlying mutuality – a sense of shared trust and altruism – that we find in a functioning society, from which actions supporting planetary health grow. The Common Good is one necessary component of planetary health, but not singularly sufficient. Learn about all four pathways and other PPH events here.

This live webinar will be conducted on Zoom at 12:00 p.m. ET on Tuesday, September 27, 2022. The webinar link will be emailed to participants within twenty-four hours of registration. Please email us at events@garrisoninstitute.org with questions.
