The Sustainable Nunatsiavut Futures Project is a transdisciplinary project in which scientists, community members and students learn together, build relationships, and create bonds. This project hopes to combine Inuit Knowledge and western science to support informed decisions and planning for the Zone of the Labrador Inuit Settlement Area, and ensure protection of Inuit interests into the future.
