Event Description:

Nia Tero, Indigenous Peoples Rights International (IPRI), and the UN Voluntary Fund will hold a series of four free virtual intensive trainings ahead of the 23rd Session of the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues in New York City in April 2024.

This session will be focused on the United Nations and Indigenous Peoples, including an overview of Free Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC).

All four training sessions will be held for Indigenous rights defenders to learn more about engaging at this year’s UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (UNPFII). This year’s UNPFII theme focuses on the right to self-determination in the context of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, with an emphasis on Indigenous youth.

The trainings are open to Indigenous Peoples from around the world who want to learn more about the UNPFII and how to effectively engage in the process.
