Other Voices, Other Ways, Better Practices: Bridging Local and Professional Environmental Knowledge

Making rapid advances towards sustainability is of importance to all people.How can we humans, wherever we live, best create a viable and healthy relationship with nature? To find workable answers, we need to find ways to integrate “professional” knowledge, typically held by the university-trained Western “outsider,” with the local insider’s expert viewpoint and approach into an overall understanding of the challenges at hand. As well, we need to integrate what to do about the challenges in equitable, practical, rational, and justified ways.
