lecture: Terraforming Planet Earth
Practical terraforming technologies for regenerating soils and souls
Large parts of the surface of our planet have been devastated by human activity. Terraforming on a human scale is needed to bring these landscapes back to life. The knowledge and technology is there, and you can learn how to use it and participate.
Large scale ecological regeneration needs to be a collaborative participatory process with the direct involvement of all interested people, local and global. Inviting the local population to elevate the physical state of their natural environments, their social and cultural heritage is part of the process of bringing deserts back to life through human-scale terraforming. In a pilot project in Jordan, the Rhizo Camp, these methods are brought to work to ecologicaly restore 15 hectares of land high on Jordan’s mountain ridge, where the essential challenge is scarcity and usage of water.
