Webinar to help Native organizations and tribal communities get ready to conduct a Community Food Sovereignty Assessment

Free Webinar Series Will Get You Ready to “GO”
on a Community Food Sovereignty Assessment

First Nations Development Institute has scheduled a new series of five free First Nations Knowledge webinars that will help Native organizations and tribal communities get ready to “GO” on conducting a Community Food Sovereignty Assessment, with the last in the series focusing on moving forward with action planning after the assessment.

Four of the webinars in this series will be led by Vicky Karhu, a longtime First Nations consultant and a national expert in planning for and conducting Food Sovereignty Assessments in Native communities. The Dec. 5, 2016, webinar on data collection and analysis will be led by John Phillips, Ph.D., also a longtime First Nations consultant. (Note: The Dec. 5 webinar begins at Noon Mountain Time, while the others all begin at 1 p.m.) Each will be an hour in length and will allow time at the end for questions and answers. (The webinars may go longer than an hour if there are lots of questions, but staying on longer is optional for each attendee.)

Here’s the schedule. Please register for each webinar individually:
