Please join us at 12pm on 10 November at the SRC (IC1.49A) in person and via Zoom https://usc-au.zoom.us/j/92877431588 when Jasmine Pearson, a PhD Candidate in Earth and Environmental Sciences at UQ will give a presentation entitled 'Mangrove? More like Womangrove! Am I right ladies?'
This presentation will involve an exploration of gender-specific knowledge and perspectives on ecosystem services. Drawing from her research in Bua Province, Vanua Levu Island, Fiji, Jasmine will focus on the traditional role of iTaukei women in mangrove ecosystem management. The findings provide insights into how gender roles can influence the ways people interact with and value local ecosystems.
