Webinar: 'Indigenous People in COVID-19 Era' to Mark International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples

Monday, August 10, 2020
Event Place: 
Online via Zoom

To mark the 'International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples' (9 August, 2020), RCE East Kalimantan and RCE Srinagar will hold a webinar the following day on Monday 10th August, 2020.

The Asia-Pacific region is home to a large number of Indigenous communities – these communities are present in many RCEs, while several RCEs have also been working with them on a number of issues. This webinar is a chance to share activities, experiences, and the challenges that Indigenous communities are faced with, as well as any COVID-19 impacts if relevant.

RCEs in the Asia-Pacific region interested in participating are requested to email RCE Srinagar (rcesrinagar@gmail.com) by 27 July, 2020, and send their presentation through to RCE Srinagar by 5 August, 2020. Slots will be reserved only after receiving presentations, and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Each presenter will be given 10 minutes to present.

RCEs in regions outside the Asia-Pacific are also welcome to participate in this webinar. If the time zone makes live participation difficult, RCEs may send their pre-recorded presentations (only up to 10 minutes duration), which can be played in the webinar. Note that webinar recordings will also be made available in the public domain.

Please note, no prior registration is required to join this webinar.

Date/Time: Monday 10 August, 2020, 13:00-15:00 (JST)
Access: Join via Zoom here (Meeting ID: 698 634 4637)
