CMS seminar: The concept of time and language from an Indigenous Worldview and impacts to participation in research, by Mibu Fischer

Event Date: 25 November, 2021



The Indigenous worldview differs from a Western worldview, some of the differences influence the way we live in the world. One difference in the concept of time, time in a Western context is lineal. This is not the case for many Indigenous People as well as many other cultures worldwide. So what is it about time that differs so much? This short presentation will touch on how time from an Indigenous perspective can influence the ability to contribute to climate change scenarios and forward planning predictions.

When: Nov 25, from 3:15-4:45 pm
