Speaker: Melanie Goodchild, Founder, Senior Indigenous Research Fellow and Associate
Melanie will share stories about her work supporting a regenerative future for Indigenous communities through Turtle Island Institute (TII), a project on the Tides Canada shared platform. TII incorporates prophecies, Anishinaabe gikendaasowin (knowledge), and cultural approaches together with systems thinking, complexity and resilience thinking to imagine and build a future where all of these energies align. Blending tools for systems transformation together with a focus on personal growth and leadership, TII is leading work on healing self and systems to tackle intractable problems. What kinds of mushkiki (medicine) do we need to foster transformative innovations? Melanie works with various thought leaders to nurture their capacities for self-awareness and inner change.
