BCMA Podcast: Climate Action
In this episode, Dr. Smiles discusses the legacies of settler colonialism in environmentalism and climate action, as well as the potential role of the cultural sector in reimagining stewardship, centering Indigenous ways of knowing, and creative ways of relating with living environments, including more-than-human kin, in an era of climate crisis.
How does culture connect to climate action? How do we value nature? What are museums roles’ in preserving and advocating for natural, intangible and tangible heritage? How can museums center Indigenous knowledge in climate action and disrupt legacies of settler colonialism in climate action?
