Date of Conference: 7th October 2017

Venue of the Conference: Auditorium, Ajeenkya DY Patil University, Charoli Budruk via Lohegaon, Pune- 412105  About the Conference:

Indigenous peoples are responsible for a great deal of the world’s linguistic and cultural diversity, and their traditional knowledge has been and continues to be an invaluable resource that benefits all of mankind. Yet, indigenous peoples continue to suffer discrimination, marginalization, extreme poverty and conflict.

 Meanwhile, their belief systems, cultures, languages and ways of life continue to be threatened, sometimes even by extinction. Increasingly, governments are recognizing these threats, and matching such recognition with action.

In responding to the challenges they continue to face, indigenous peoples have engaged the international community, calling for a Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and a permanent forum at the United Nations that meets regularly to discuss issues & challenges.
