Fire with Fire is a multi-year, multi-partner initiative aimed at building capacity for climate adaptation by braiding Indigenous, local and scientific knowledges. Building understanding hinges on having access to the best available knowledge irrespective of its origin.

The goals of Fire with Fire are to:

  • Develop and deliver workshops with participating Indigenous communities.
  • Mobilize best available Indigenous and scientific knowledge by using the participatory video method.
  • Hold knowledge-sharing workshops to improve local climate change adaptation responses.
  • Establish respectful knowledge co-production between Indigenous, local, scientific and decision-making communities.

There are numerous opportunities to scale-up this initiative such as sponsoring the multi-partner workshops. Interested supporters please contact admin@rockiesinstitute.ca
