Online Micro-Certificate in Co-Management of Natural Resources

>>Click here to register<<

This online professional micro-certificate is a unique opportunity to build the foundation necessary to tackle complex natural resource management issues, and steer towards a future advancing co-management initiatives, institutional and relational change, and intercultural understanding, especially as Crown governments work to advance reconciliation and renew relationships with Indigenous Peoples and communities.

Grounded on the Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) and the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP), this program aims to bring together multiple perspectives, such as western science and Indigenous traditional knowledge, to help build more long-term solutions to natural resource management conflicts.

This micro-certificate consists of three courses that can be taken at your own pace over a two-year time period, totalling approximately 60 hours of work.

    “Haida people have had an intrinsic connection with this land for thousands of years. The work of our ancestors is present in the forest today and we continue our struggle to protect these sacred workplaces and the forests that contain them. The forests, lands and waters of Haida Gwaii have much to teach about a sustainable connection between human beings and the nature world. The Council of the Haida Nation supports […] educational programs that bring students from across Canada to experience the uniqueness of Haida Gwaii and Haida culture”
