Decolonizing Our Resiliency Movements

The effects of settler colonialism on these lands (Turtle Island) have created the dominant systems that now threaten our very survival, and have conditioned us to sever our ties to Mother Nature and to each other.  We will look at colonial systems of oppression, and then talk about how these show up in movements working towards climate & ecological resiliency such as Transition, Permaculture and Re-Skilling.  We will touch upon the unconscious cultural appropriation that sometimes happens in these fields.  We will also learn/share ways to be more just and inclusive in our resiliency work.  This is a continuation of a similar talk from last year’s convergence.
