Environmental problems occur at multiple spatial and temporal scales in natural-human landscapes.  Their inherent complexity makes it hard to approach each problem holistically. Instead of developing sophisticated models or computer programs, scientists need to learn from local and native communities who have internalized holistic knowledge practices that are climate and environmentally just.

Four student groups from course ESRM490/SEFS590 learned to apply the decolonizing frameworks to look and communicate complex multi-dimensional environmental problems from a more holistic perspective.  Each group was guided and facilitated by a Teaching Team that included Tribal leaders, systems-based storytelling experts, ecosystem ecologists, DEI specialists, and information and communication technologists.
