Join Y2Y and partners for the release of the Canadian Mountain Assessment report on Nov. 4, 2023 as part of the 2023 Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival. Contributors will discuss the unique approach to knowledge assessment and co-creation used to create the report, as well as the assessments key findings and recommendations.
The Canadian Mountain Assessment provides a first-of-its-kind look at what we know, do not know, and need to know about mountain systems in Canada. The multi-chapter assessment report is based on insights from First Nations, Métis, and Inuit knowledges of mountains, as well as findings from an extensive assessment of pertinent academic literature. The assessment’s inclusive knowledge co-creation approach aims to bring these multiple forms of evidence together in ways that enhance our collective understanding of mountains in Canada, while also respecting and maintaining the integrity of different knowledge systems. This transdisciplinary initiative is catalyzing a community of practice related to mountains in Canada and is expected to set the mountain research agenda for Canada for the coming decade.
