Recultivating Intergenerational Resilience: Possibilities for "Scaling DEEP" through Disruptive Pedagogies of Decolonization and Reconciliation
Williams, Lewis; Claxton, Nick
Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, v22 p58-79 2017
In the face of declining human-ecological systems, as well as intercultural and interspecies trauma, we are currently witnessing a renaissance of activist-orientated environmental education. In Canada, this work is increasingly viewed as part of a broader healing response of "DEEP" reconciliation work between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Peoples, and ultimately humankind and the planet. This article locates these themes of healing human-ecological trauma and Indigenous-non-Indigenous relationships, within the work of the International Resilience Network (IRN)--a community of practice which aims to collectively impact social-ecological resilience, in part through transformative pedagogical practices which simultaneously support Indigenous resurgence and develop epistemological and relational solidarity between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Peoples. Through our story of the IRN's inaugural summit, we share our learnings of such pedagogical practices amidst the tensions and paradoxes inherent within a decolonizing agenda.
