As part of Native American Heritage Month, Mervyn Tano, President of the International Institute for Indigenous Resources Management, will give his virtual lecture Dealing with Climate Change: Everything is Connected, Tribal Approaches to Adaptation

“There are big problems that call for big solutions, but the fact is, as individuals and communities, it can be almost impossible to come up with those solutions. What is it we have to do? We need to work both sides of our brain. We need to have civic discourse to engage in the electoral process. We need legislators, policy makers, and scientists who can come up with the big solutions. There are things that we can do as individuals and as communities, including tribal nations, cities, and counties. How do we as individuals and communities identify local problems for which we have responsibility, resources, and mechanisms to effectuate solutions? How do we connect with similarly-situated communities so small solutions get bigger and local solutions become regional?”
