Blending of Culture and Science
November 16, 8:00am - 10:00am
Both culture and science have sought to answer the questions about who we are, where do we come from and where we are going. However, as science became more technologically advanced, the role and significance of culture experiences in this quest of has diminished—often at the expense of losing precious indigenous knowledge and scientific innovations.
Recognizing that creating a balance between culture and science is essential to a sustainable future in Hawai‘i and around the world, the University of Hawai‘i (UH) is hosting this timely three-day conference that will bring together a wide range of subject matter experts to discuss the path forward.
