SHARING AND CREATING KNOWLEDGE

ON THE SAUGEEN (BRUCE) PENINSULA


We would like to invite you to the 2023 Forum, April 28 – 30, themed on biodiversity. We feel that the timing is right following the United Nations Convention of the Parties on biodiversity meetings in Montreal in December, 2022.

Registration will officially open mid-February, but stay tuned as we announce more information and launch a brand new page on biodiversity to get you ready for the Forum!

WHAT’S HAPPENING


Now that our 2022 Forum has come and gone, we would like to express our appreciation for everyone involved. Everyone who attended, presented, sponsored, volunteered and helped us pull it all off. From the setup and take down, food and dishes – THANK YOU!

If you’d like to revisit one of the discussions, check out the 2022 Forum Playlist on our YouTube to see the video proceedings – including this message from Zoe, one of the plaintiffs in Ecojustice’s Youth Climate Legal Case.

Our 2023 Forum planning is in full swing. Check back for updates as we begin to announce the details!


If you’ve been to our new Seabins Project page, you may have noticed a lot of opportunities to “learn more“. This is where we’ve been posting additional information about the seabins – what they do, how they work – but also a lot of new articles and information about the impacts of plastics!

See what’s new – like the video How Bad is Plastic and other resources.

The Sources of Knowledge Forum is intended to demonstrate how research in Bruce Peninsula National Park, Fathom Five National Marine Park, the surrounding community, and beyond can contribute to knowledge and understanding of the Saugeen-Bruce Peninsula.

In an effort to further the Sources of Knowledge goal to encourage and enable youth to be stewards of this remarkable place, we also administer an annual Student Bursary Award in partnership with Parks Canada. This bursary program has allowed us to help local students finance their post-secondary education, in areas of conservation and related themes, to work toward a prospective career with Parks Canada.

Our SoK Talk initiative aims to provide ongoing opportunities, outside of the Forum, to share knowledge on a wide variety of special interest topics. Subjects from the past, present, and future that help propagate continuous learning and understanding of the Peninsula and its people.

We acknowledge that SoK operates on the Territory of the Anishinabek Nation: The People of the Three Fires known as Ojibway, Odawa, and Pottawatomie Nations. And we further give thanks to the Chippewas of Saugeen, and the Chippewas of Nawash, known collectively as the Saugeen Ojibway Nation, as the traditional keepers of this land.
