Course Description

This course, co-created with members of the Haida Nation, will train and empower the next generation of researchers seeking to co-create science for the betterment of aquatic systems.

Co-Creating Aquatic Science is an interdisciplinary, multi-generational, and profoundly relational course. Enrolment in this course is selective, to keep the course small so that classes remain comfortable, conversational, and geared towards cultivating relationships. While we welcome applications from people across North America, we will prioritize applications from Indigenous learners in coastal British Columbia.
