1) Tackling the complex problem that is human habitat in all its sociocultural, physical and administrative dimensions

 

2) Coproducing and integrating new knowledge that creates a complete and sensible picture of Northern native living environments

 

3) Calling on parterns' interdisciplinarity and imagination to define shared visions for the future, to conceive housing and environmental models that make these visions reality, and to devise appropriate and ground-breaking scenarios and practices for intergrated planning.

GOVERNANCE OF THE PARTNERSHIP

The project uses a participatory research framework, interdisciplinary and intersectoral with and for the Innu and Inuit communities to cross indigenous knowledge with those from various fields of living environments (architecture, urban design, geography, health, sociology, political science). The management and governance framework enables partners to develop and cosolidate various responsabilities, including accountability and feedback, while undertaking the review of progress, monitoring activities and problem solving. There is flexibility in the allocation of resources, and transparent communication, even remotely, to monitor governance.  

The framework of governance and management is composed of three main palliers, which ensures the smooth running of the project and the management of activities based on the representation of different groups of partners. This framework is based on the experience of the ARUC Tetauan headed by Habitats + Cultures of the School of Architecture at Laval University.
