Updated: Mar 14
Get ready to be inspired! The upcoming UN 2023 Water Conference will witness an unprecedented collaboration between Indigenous knowledge and cutting-edge space technology. The GEO Indigenous Alliance, led by two visionary champions, James Rattling Leaf Sr. and Lilian Nguracha, is at the forefront of this revolutionary approach to managing our planet's most precious resource - water.
These powerful voices are redefining the way we manage our planet's most precious resource - water. James, who is a member of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe, will present the work of the GEO Indigenous Alliance and provide first-hand experience and insight into the challenges Indigenous communities face in managing water resources. Lilian from the Samburu Tribe will share her winning solution from the 2022 Indigenous Hackathon, which uses space-based applications to empower Indigenous women and promote inclusive decision-making for water conservation in Kenya.
The GEO Indigenous Alliance's participation in the UN 2023 Water Conference is critical for policymakers, scientists, and Indigenous Peoples. With their expertise and experience, they bridge two different worlds that often do not have the opportunity to interact. Their participation will also shed light on the unique challenges Indigenous communities face in managing water resources and promote inclusive and equitable decision-making processes.
This is an exceptional opportunity for policymakers to learn from the trailblazers of our time. Join the GEO Indigenous Alliance at the UN 2023 Water Conference and experience the power of Indigenous knowledge and space technology for a sustainable future. Together, we can revolutionize the way we manage our planet's most precious resource - water.
