To what extent is Western science limited by language?"

How will Indigenous and peasant societies survive the continued impact of globalization and Western economic systems?

Is it possible for Western and Indigenous people to dialogue together in truly meaningful ways?

What can Western science learn from the knowledge systems of Indigenous peoples?

To what extent does Western science, technology and economics harm the planet and its peoples?

How can Indigenous peoples revive and reclaim their lost knowledge?

How can these same people incorporate elements of Western science without dislocating their own traditions?
