ONLINE: Diverse Perspectives on Knowledge Mobilization – A GIER Webinar

February 10 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Event Navigation

The Guelph Institute for Environmental Research (GIER) is pleased to invite you to the webinar “Diverse Perspectives on Knowledge Mobilization.”

Our panelists will be Caroline Duvieusart-Dery, Georgia Simms and Tommy Mayberry, discussing creative ways to mobilize interdisciplinary environmental research.

We have long known that we need to mobilize research knowledge more creatively if we wish to tackle ‘wicked’ environmental problems and put research into practice. Increasingly siloed disciplines, a disconnect between arts and science, and a lack of engagement and equity in academia and society jeopardize our capacity to collaboratively respond to environmental crises in a creative, innovative and equitable way. This webinar brings fresh and novel perspectives on knowledge mobilization to enrich environmental conversations. Join the Guelph Institute for Environmental Research (GIER), in partnership with Food from Thought, as we discuss with experts how critical community engagement, arts and diversity and inclusion perspectives can advance the way we think, do and mobilize interdisciplinary environmental research.

To register for this free webinar, visit https://gier.eventbrite.ca or email info.gier@uoguelph.ca.

Please help us direct attention to this webinar by sharing with your network and on social media.

We look forward to having you join us!
