Tribes and First Nations in the Pacific Northwest have made great progress in observing and documenting environmental change on their homelands, but climate change is increasing at a pace that challenges important ways of life. So Tribes and First Nations across the region are coming together to learn from past work and to discuss how to continue climate change studies to provide the support communities need to adapt and thrive for generations to come. This summit is being led by Tribes and First Nations for Tribal leadership and their staff.
Who Should Attend?
Tribal elected and appointed leaders, resource managers, health specialists, traditional elders, scientists, students and practitioners will discuss current issues along four Summit Tracks:
Traditional Knowledge – Exploring the role of traditional knowledges in respectfully and appropriately addressing contemporary environmental change

Becoming Resilient – Assessing vulnerability to environmental change and moving ahead with plans and adaptation actions
Advancing Policy – Identifying effective policy strategies to continue studying our environments and plan for a resilient future
