Unveiling the Power of Open Science for Indigenous Communities

Join us on August 10, 1 p.m. EST, for the NASA Transform to Open Science (TOPS) monthly forum,  “Unveiling the Power of Open Science for Indigenous Communities,” in honor of World Indigenous Peoples Day.  

Featuring speakers from NASA’s Indigenous People Initiative, SERVIR Amazonia, and Dr. Sierra Brown of Million Concepts LLC; a TOPS curriculum writer and member of the Shinnecock Nation, this forum will delve into the incredible ways open science is empowering indigenous communities. The speakers will also discuss how these communities benefit from open science practices and share insights into the remarkable work being done by these teams and the open science community at large. 

Open science plays a crucial role in empowering indigenous communities by providing them with access to scientific knowledge and data, as well as tools that can support their sustainable development and cultural preservation efforts. By sharing their unique perspectives, traditional knowledge and valuable insights, indigenous communities can contribute to scientific research and policy discussions, ensuring that their voices and perspectives are included and valued in decision-making processes.
