Elevating the role of Inuit Knowledge through the SIKU App
Inuit have the knowledge and expertise to lead environmental research, management and monitoring, but a lack of value and respect for Inuit Knowledge prevents this.
Time and location

Nuuk library, Imaneq 26, Nuuk 3900, Greenland
About the event
SIKU (www.siku.org), made in Canada by Inuit for Inuit, is now available in Kalaallisut! SIKU promotes the value of Inuit Knowledge and is a fun way to share about your hunting and fishing with others across Inuit Nunaat. ICC Greenland will share how they may use SIKU to demonstrate the importance of Inuit Knowledge in Greenland.
