This report details the proceedings of the two day event “Ethical Space for Knowledge Coproduction: Workshop on Ethics and Community Based Monitoring” held February 12-13, 2019 at the University of Alberta on the traditional territories of the Treaty 6 Nations and the homelands of the Métis peoples. The gathering included ethics experts, scientists, community based monitoring practitioners and Indigenous partners involved in knowledge coproduction. The workshop supported participants to build a common understanding of ethical space for knowledge coproduction, reflect on key ethical issues and solutions from their experiences in environmental community based monitoring, and contribute to the development of draft Ethical Guidelines to guide such work in Alberta. The event was co-sponsored by the Alberta Environment and Parks Environmental Monitoring and Science Division and the University of Alberta Tracking Change Project.
