UAKN Research Podcast Series Now Released!
When exploring new and innovative ways to transmit knowledge of the UAKN projects the UAKN has decided to launch a podcast series to highlight community driven research in the form of storytelling. The goal of these podcasts are to provide an in depth perspective on how community driven research occurs on the ground and the importance that relationships and partnerships play in this process. Relationship building and the inclusion of Indigenous culture are key themes being revealed when examining what makes a project a success. These projects are creating community impacts on the ground while also providing policy recommendations that aim to further contribute to a better life for urban Aboriginal peoples in Canada. The UAKN Podcast Series has been released on a UAKN channel on Soundclound, you can visit here: https://soundcloud.com/uaknnafc
