These talks aim to foster different views on our natural resources by creating a safe space for indigenous and non-indigenous perspectives to be shared and discussed. We aim to challenge conventional views of resource development and uncover concrete ways to bridge the gap for a new way forward in partnership, mutual respect and mutual understanding.
