Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) and well-being of indigenous people


The Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) of the indigenous people are eroding rapidly worldwide. This knowledge, which evolved over thousands of years through direct contact with the environment, is seen in academia as a valuable component in protecting biodiversity, adapting to climate change and developing new pharmaceutical products.
Human well-being spreads across several domains, including the satisfaction of material needs, the experience of freedom, health, personal security, good social relations, strong cultural identity and a healthy natural environment.
The primary objective of the PhD study is to understand and analyse the role that Traditional Ecological Knowledge plays in relation to the multiple domains of well-being among an indigenous, former hunter-gatherer tribe.
