Young leaders hopeful about the futures of indigenous education and knowledge

YWS #1 - Visual EN

Five leaders and advocates of indigenous peoples’ rights explored how indigenous education and traditional knowledge contribute to more relevant and inclusive education during the first webinar of a youth series co-organized by UNESCO and the United Nations Office of the Secretary-General’s Envoy on Youth. Offering their positive thoughts for the future, the panelists were hopeful about achieving universal citizenship, where indigenous people share knowledge and contributions not only for themselves, but to enrich humanity; where multiculturalism is embraced; and with active participation and leadership by youth and indigenous people. The panelists touched upon several topics – notably the importance of intercultural education and language diversity, the promise of inclusive technology, gender equality and the empowerment of indigenous communities.
