Exhibition Poster - Local Knowledge, Global Goals

This exhibition is a reflection on indigenous and local knowledge systems, and their interactions with science and policy, today and in the future.
As the world changes increasingly rapidly, we explore the ways that indigenous and local knowledge contributes to understanding, mitigating and adapting to climate change, environmental degradation and biodiversity loss.
UNESCO’s Local and Indigenous Knowledge Systems Programme (LINKS), established in 2002, is grateful to Denmark, France (ANR, CNRS and MNHN), Japan, Norway, Sweden, IPBES, the Christensen Fund and UNU for their support during the past 15 years.
