Winter 2020-21 Indigenous Peoples and Climate Change

This semester, the department continues to collaborate with Infoe (Institut für Ökologie und Aktions-Ethnologie) on the topic of indigenous peoples and climate change.

Again, there will be panel discussions organized by Sarah Mund together with Infoe, which will be coupled to the seminar of Prof. Bollig "The Anthropology of Climate and Climate Change".

The discussions are open for everyone interested in the topic and will take place as a Zoom-meetings.

Anyone interested can notify Sarah Mund (smund4@uni-koeln.de) and will receive the Zoom invitation.


In summer semester 2020 as part of the Master course "Indigene und Klimawandel" held by Sarah Mund there was also a panel discussion with two indigenous representatives - Pasang Dolma Sherpa from Nepal and Rodion Sulyandziga from Russia - who are both working in UN organisations on the topic of climate change.

Topics for the discussion were:

  • How are indigenous peoples represented in the (inter)national climate change discourse and policy making.
  • How can anthropologists or activists support indigenous peoples in the face of climate change?
