THE 2019 SERIES
9 - 11 SEPT 2019
On the 7th - 11th September 2019 Indigenous Representatives from across the globe gathered in London for the Flourishing Diversity Series, educating and inspiring diverse modern audiences to envision a future habitable earth for all life.
A series of events took place, bringing together representatives from 17 different indigenous communities, encompassing all four corners of the globe, to share wisdom, ideas and strategies for addressing contemporary environmental challenges.
Starting with a collective movement along the River Thames (the Gaia Spirit Movement) to envision the future they wish for, participants were invited to deepen their awareness and understanding of their role and responsibility in creating places where diversity can flourish during the following Summit and Listening Sessions.
During the course of 5 days, Indigenous representatives from Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Colombia, Kenya, India, Namibia, New Zealand, North America, Peru and Sweden shared their perspectives, stories and calls to action with hundreds of attendees.
By creating a platform for wisdom traditions, the Flourishing Diversity Series (FDS) seeks to inspire appreciation and support amongst Western leaders and the public for the vital role Indigenous people play in resisting ecological collapse, and asks each of us to consider how we can ‘Become a Flourisher’ by creatively focusing our actions to encourage diversity to flourish in the spaces communities and organisations we have influence over.
