Igniting the Sparkle: Sharing knowledge between Western and Indigenous sciences

Mar 8 2016 - 7:00pm

The Faculties of Science and Native Studies are pleased to announce a two-day event to showcase, explore, reinforce and expand intersections between western and Indigenous knowledge and science. Inspired by the Calls to Action from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Report, this conversation will build and enhance these connections through a public talk and symposium, to explore how we can contribute to finding ways to share and respect science knowledge within and between these two cultures and worldviews.

Change is in the Air: from Climate Chaos to Climate Justice

Jan 20 2016 (All day) - Jan 21 2016 (All day)

Change is in the Air Poster

The King’s University invites you to its Winter 2016 Interdisciplinary Studies Conference

CHANGE IS IN THE AIR – in more ways than one. On one hand, the climate is changing. Overwhelming scientific consensus confirms the reality of climate change and warns of the threat it poses to the planet and its human and non-human inhabitants. These warnings have prompted urgent appeals, not simply for changes in action and policy, but also deeper changes in how we think about and imagine our relationship to the creation itself. But change is in the air in other ways too – as vulnerable communities respond to the challenge of global warming, as our reliance on the carbon economy is being questioned, and as political leaders try to hammer out a global climate agreement, change is inevitable.

Edmonton Resilience Festival

Feb 7 2015 (All day) - Feb 8 2015 (All day)

From the Edmonton Resilience Festival website:

Mission Statement:

The Edmonton Resilience Festival aims to strengthen community resilience through skill-sharing workshops and other events, inspiring participants to help create a sustainable, creative and promising future. The festival will also help to restore a sense of community that is often lost in cities experiencing rapid development and population growth. By bringing together diverse participants and creating opportunities for learning, sharing and connecting, we hope to expand our horizons, our skill sets and our community networks.

What can we expect?

The inaugural Edmonton Resilience Festival will run February 7 and 8, 2015, at the beautiful Boyle Street Plaza in downtown Edmonton. We  have a mix of hands-on practical workshops, guidedConversation Cafés, art and social events, and a fair showcasing the work of community organizations called the Community Connections Fair.
