Politics of Nature is an international initiative uniting people from tech, sciences and society to rethink, develop and deploy better ways of governing the commons.
Since May 2018 we have made four editions. One in Copenhagen, two in Amsterdam and one in Brasilia. You can read about them in the Articles section
The project will explore how humans can learn to interact with non-humans and engage in a joint political discussion where the end goal is to achieve ‘consents for coexistence’.
Water ressources and privacy by design we believe will be topics only picking up more and more attention in the coming years. They touch upon ethics, infrastructure and survival. We hope to contribute to these big challenges with perspectives, not one sides opinion, before situations gets dramatically worse. Do we take a stand ? Yes, otherwise the project would never had started.
Our stand is that something proactive needs to be done with communication and representation to avoid further polarized fronts. We do not wish to face the consequences of running out of ressources nor loosing the capability to understand a person or thing that we disagree with.
We don’t, can’t and won’t control the outcomes of the editions. This is being created by the actors involved. We present a canvas and principles for a new democratic conversation.
Our vision is that everyone can pick up the tools and explore their networks and identify durable and lasting solutions to apparently wicked and unsolvable problems.
