About this event

Storytelling is a pedagogical tool that is beneficial in conservation education and outreach. It’s particularly important in decolonizing work, because it honors and prioritizes the voices of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC).

This workshop will provide a brief background on the historical context of storytelling as a scientific research methodology through autoethnographic field journals and life sciences pedagogical practices, specifically on knowledge creation and dissemination by BIPOC scientists and scholars. We’ll then dive into practical applications, including how to bring artifactual critical literacy into conservation lessons by incorporating natural elements, wildlife, and trail signs; applying the research cycle to forest schools and outdoor experiences; and helping learners develop a more holistic and community-based approach to science. This process carves out space in the conservation movement for people who have been silenced, violently separated from their lands, and historically harmed by the industrialization of science.

If you are an organizer, advocate, or educator at any level, this workshop will be informative, fruitful, and inspiring.
