Decolonizing Science and Moving to Inclusive Science

2022年9月27日 (火) 22:002022年9月28日 (水) 0:30

It is therefore necessary to acknowledge and undo colonial structures and processes and change practices and mindsets within science and scientific communities. A keynote presentation and subsequent panel will address colonial scientific practices, the negative scientific developments that are caused by them, and how to move towards an inclusive science system, globally.
