Red Tide Indigenous Climate Action Summit
Pacific Peoples’ Partnership (PPP) typically produces a major international Pacific Networking Conference (PNC) every two years or so in Canada. We have held 23 so far. The themes and content of the conferences are always timely and on point, because they were developed in collaboration with our South Pacific and Canadian Indigenous partners.
In 2018 we are excited to be co-hosting our first-ever Pacific Networking Conference in the South Pacific!
Toi Toi Manawa Trust and Pacific Peoples’ Partnership are thrilled to co-present Red Tide: International Indigenous Climate Action Summit in the Māori tribal lands of Te Whānau-ā-Apanui, an iwi located in the eastern Bay of Plenty and East Coast regions of New Zealand’s North Island.
The main convening dates are confirmed for May 1 – 6, 2018.
May 1 & 2, 2018 – Youth Conference
May 3 – 6, 2018 – Full Summit
A wonderful pre-conference protocol program is also in development with more details to come, as is an artist residency. See additional information on our website www.redtidesummit.com
Join us in discussing and strategizing as we integrate Indigenous environmental science, activism, scientific observations and Indigenous youth involvement. The Summit will feature keynote speakers, interactive cultural sessions, open spaces and a festival of artists that will activate and rejuvenate this global movement.
Indigenous scholars, activists, allies, knowledge keepers and artists are invited to share, co-create, and connect ideas, impacts and stories related to climate change.
We are seeking donations towards the travel costs of delegates. Please donate now to help fund an Indigenous delegate to the gathering.
