Addressing inequities in Arctic research through unlearning and learning: exploring how values influence how we conduct research

22 March 2024 | 16:00 - 18:00 (UK)

Open Session - ON-SITE ONLY

Room: Holyrood (JMCC)

Organiser: Jenna Vater, James Temte, Matthew Druckenmiller (Navigating the New Arctic Community Office, United States)


Event Description:

The need for more equitable approaches to performing Arctic research has been widely recognized by Arctic Indigenous communities and many Arctic researchers. In response to this, the Navigating the New Arctic Community Office (NNA-CO) is interested in advancing tools and approaches to assist Arctic researchers and partners in unlearning harmful methodologies and learning more equitable approaches based in the foundations of knowledge co-production. In this workshop, attendees will learn about the NNA-CO’s Arctic Research is Relationship course, participate in individual and group examination of how values influence how we conduct research as well as a discussion of how to align actions and values to affect change at a larger scale.
