This session will gather indigenous leaders (including youth, women and elders) from Latin America and the Caribbean for an interactive exchange on indigenous knowledge and its interconnectedness to the exercise and protection of indigenous peoples’ rights. The indigenous leaders and elders will share ways that indigenous knowledge can strengthen identities, wellbeing and sustainable landscape management. The youth participants will share some of the challenges they face and their aspirations as indigenous youth. Speakers in this session will engage in a dialogue amongst themselves and with the audience on how to advance indigenous knowledge for sustainable landscapes under a rights-based framework that takes into account the perspectives of all – youth and women in particular. All the presenters speak Spanish, so the session will be in Spanish with simultaneous translation.
