Join us for an informative and engaging lecture presented by York University Professor and Indigenous scholar, Deborah McGregor. In her lecture, “Decolonizing Conservation: Living in Harmony with Nature”, McGregor discusses the pivotal roles Indigenous peoples play in the decolonization process and reconciliation process in guiding conservation science toward a harmonious coexistence with nature. Throughout her lecture, McGregor will be drawing upon an Anishinabek theoretical foundation to offer a distinctive perspective on planetary well-being.

Deborah McGregor’s distinguished career in environmental governance has earned her numerous advisory positions, including an appointment to the Indigenous Circle of Experts for the Assembly of First Nations Climate Change and Environmental Committee.
