EPA: Advancing Considerations of Traditional Knowledge Into Federal Decision Making

March 23, 2022 @ 2:30 pm EDT

The federal government is seeking ways to advance the consideration of Traditional Knowledge (TK) in federal decision-making processes, in coordination and collaboration with federally recognized tribes and indigenous peoples. This webinar will discuss the importance of considering TK, including ethics, values, etc., in decision-making, and recent developments and actions of the federal government to further consider TK, including plans to develop guidance for federal agencies, for which the government is seeking input.

The first webinar was held on September 15, 2021, and the second webinar was held on October 19, 2021, which were recorded and can be viewed by going to the EPA EJ website for tribes and indigenous peoples (halfway down the page)
