From Oceania to Canada, communities are starting to migrate to urban centres as their ways of life are forever altered by climate change. How will we ensure the cultural continuity of these communities and preserve their way of life? As an architect, environmental design researcher, and a Kanaka Maoli, I am fascinated by how community-based knowledge can mitigate vulnerability and sustain traditions. What if the design of our cities could support the identities of resettled communities and lessen culture loss, rather than alienate new arrivals? I’ll explore possible ways to help climate refugees maintain their identities in their new homes.
