CTAUN 2021 WEBINAR
JANUARY 24th 3:00PM - 5:00PM
The United Nations and Indigeneous Peoples: Advocating for Education. This is happening soon, on Sunday afternoon, 24 January 2021 from 3:00 - 5:00 p.m. We will come together to affirm our commitments to the United Nations and its 2007 Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP).
An inspired group of CTAUN planners led by Mary Metzger have constructed an exciting roster of Indigenous education leaders and student speakers, along with our own Ramu Damodaran and Anne-Marie Carlson hosting, to invite conversation about the impact of UNDRIP.
We are pleased to have this event on this U.N. designated International Day of Education. We hope participants of this CTAUN webinar will come away inspired to transform their curriculums, teaching, and research. We also want to encourage teachers to consider ways to develop relationships with indigenous peoples so they teach their students to be conscious of many nations, languages, values, and histories.
Our webinar planning committee and our technologically savvy members could not be more delighted to bring this opportunity to you, and to the teachers and students CTAUN is reaching who want to develop curriculums to teach about the United Nations and the Sustainable Development Goals. The intent of this webinar is to kindle and rekindle our understandings of indigenous knowledge and educational practices, and, to learn about the current initiatives that can be transformative to our ways of knowing, thinking, and using language.
