Indicators of Well-being Webinar Series

The Center for Biodiversity and Conservation is pleased to host a biannual webinar series on Indicators of Well-being in, with, by, and for Indigenous Peoples and local communities. The webinars are intended to provide a virtual platform for learning and exchange among practitioners who are actively using, or have interest in using, place-based monitoring and reporting indicators on well-being or related metrics that bridge social and ecological dimensions, nature and culture, people and place. Each webinar session combines brief guest presentations that illuminate place-based experiences on the topic, together with an interactive, exchange-focused format using virtual breakout rooms to share and compare examples and available resources. To encourage knowledge exchange across our global networks, all webinar sessions are recorded and made available at a later date.

In October 2019, the CBC hosted our inaugural session in partnership with the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources World Commission on Protected Areas (IUCN WCPA). We were pleased to welcome guest presentations by Carolina Behe, the Indigenous Knowledge and Science Advisor for the Inuit Circumpolar Council, and Kelly Biedenweg, an Assistant Professor of Human Dimensions in Oregon State University’s Department of Fisheries and Wildlife.
