Around the world Indigenous peoples are actively engaged in finding actionable solutions in response to climate change to ensure the survival and flourishing of our planet, places and peoples. The Indigenous Climate Change Research Summit (IICCRS) is an International Indigenous-led online gathering designed to amplify Indigenous voices, ideas and actionable solutions. It is being hosted online by Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga, Aotearoa New Zealand's Māori Centre of Research Excellence.

Attendance is welcome from all peoples, countries, sectors and research disciplines. The summit will be of interest to decision and policy makers, communities, action groups, educators, scientists, researchers and change-makers. The summit is designed to create a clear channel to ensure Indigenous world views and peoples voices are amplified globally and above the discourses that presently dominate climate change narratives. Connecting across countries and cultures, the summit will be a fulcrum for evidenced and actionable solutions that seek to mitigate the impacts of climate change on Indigenous peoples, our places and ways of life.
