Alain Cuerrier is an ethnobotanist from the Montreal Botanical Garden. He has collaborated with a number of First Nations in Canada, especially on such disciplines as medicinal plants, climate change and health.
Alain Cuerrierwill lead a workshop session to talk about supporting a new generation of ethnobiologists. The session on supporting a new generation of ethnobiologists will be based upon an informal discussion among all participants, a discussion triggered by the experience of mentors but fuelled by each participant’s project and experience as young ethnobiologists from different countries. If the weather permits, a short walk outside will take place in order to further exchange about the different contexte in which ethnobiology can play an important role.
