Why is this workshop important?

For many young researchers, the opportunity to work in the field in the North is an incredible experience, whether it be on a personal or a professional level. However, most students do not receive proper training to work with northern indigenous communities. A significant number of students who work in the North often experience a culture shock upon arrival.


The general objective of this workshop is to encourage cooperation and a balance between traditional and scientific knowledge, as well as to share different perspectives between scientific and northern communities.
