GBW is collaborating once again with Café Sci to make science accessible!

Our GBW theme aligns with the UN’s International Year of Basic Science for Sustainable Development.


This is hybrid event, in person at Boffins Event Centre, Innovation Place, (109 Research Dr, Saskatoon SK) and ONLINE

Dr. James (Jim) Robson is Associate Professor in Human Dimensions of Sustainability at the School of Environment and Sustainability (SENS), and UNESCO Co-Chair (since 2018) in Biocultural Diversity, Sustainability, Reconciliation, and Renewal. He conducts research in collaboration with Indigenous and local communities in Latin America and Canada on land use and environmental governance issues.   
Why communities are at the heart of global conservation efforts 
This talk is about the relationship between people and nature, about (Indigenous, traditional, rural) communities as global players in conservation and environmental stewardship, and how young people in these communities will shape what happens next in such places. Jim draws on experiences, observations and lessons learned from 20-odd-years working in and with communities across the Americas.
