Are you an indigenous women or in touch with indigenous communities. Don't miss this chance to make the voices of indigenous women heard. We would like to contribute to closing the digital divide, as well as to raise the voices of indigenous women on their views realated to water and the environment.
Spread the word about this opportunity so we can reach as many Indigenous women as possible.
This participatory workshop aims at making women's voices heard, collecting the user needs of indigenous communities in terms of water resources management and the protection of the water cycle towards the space sector. The working language of the workshop will be English. Participatory design thinking methods and rapid prototyping will be used to ease communication and knowledge exchange between indigenous women, the workshop hosts and supportive community activists. Such rapid prototyping techniques have proven to be successful in eliciting implicit knowledge and manifesting in the prototype. This can aid to overcome potential language barriers.
To re-empower and support Indigenous women in their role as water stewards, as well as to learn from them and include them into the water management and conservation dialogue UNOOSA invites them to this participatory workshop to address challenges.
