We are pleased to announce The International Society of Ethnobiology’s 5th Pre-Congress Workshop for Emerging Ethnobiologists, on the theme “Ethnobiology in the 21st Century: reflecting on the Declaration of Belém 30 years on.” The workshop is expected to take place on the 2nd-5th August, 2018.

The workshop aims to bring together a range of critical perspectives on ethical practice and epistemic justice in ethnobiology, and to dissect and discuss the relevance and limitations of the Declaration of Belém and the ISE Code of Ethics in light of contemporary issues in ethnobiology. Confirmed indigenous and academic mentors will attend from Canada, United-States, Taiwan, New Zealand, Brazil, and French Guiana. For more details on the workshop themes and goals, please see this description. We anticipate releasing a Call for Applications in April 2018.
