We are Indigenous Series

There are an estimated 476 million Indigenous peoples in the world, living across 90 countries. They speak an overwhelming majority of the world’s estimated 7,000 languages and represent 5,000 different cultures.

In the We Are Indigenous series, United Nations Academic Impact (UNAI) speaks with Indigenous academics, activists and community leaders to learn how the global Indigenous community’s contributions are building a healthier and more sustainable future for us all.

June 2021: Environment (SDGs 13, 14 and 15)

Beginning with the observance of World Environment Day on 5 June, this month we focus on SDGs 13, 14 and 15 through the overarching theme of “Environment.” Read more about the Goal of the Month here.
