Creating change together: relational systems thinking and Indigenous knowledge
Faced with the urgent challenges of climate change and inequality, how can people from different cultures and worldviews come together to make change that works for all?
How might braiding together Indigenous wisdom and systems thinking to help leaders and changemakers unlock their creative capacities for holistic problem-solving?
For this special evening, we are joined by Melanie Goodchild. Melanie is moose clan from Biigtigong Nishnaabeg and Ketegaunseebee First Nations in Northern Ontario. She is the Founder and Co-Director of the Turtle Island Institute, a global Indigenous social innovation think & do tank (a teaching lodge).
She explores relational systems thinking, the ethical or sacred space between Indigenous and non-Indigenous ways of thinking and knowing, to identify pathways for peaceful co-existence of epistemologies, through creating spaces to bring together the hearts and minds of those who hope to shift systems.
In this event, Melanie invites us to create space and time together through a tea service, before hearing more about her work and approach to change.
In the midst of the critical COP26 conference, this event will provide a reflective and connecting space.
If you would like to join in with the tea service itself, we invite you to have your favourite tea and a kettle nearby, or a drink of your choosing.
Look out for more events on this theme coming up in our Regenerative Futures programme this autumn.
