Towards a New Natural State

Futures Seminar #6: Futures for the Living World

The future of humanity is intimately entangled with and dependent on the prosperity and health of Earth’s ecosystems – for better and worse. This Futures Seminar marks the release of Futures for the Living World, the newest edition of our quarterly publication FARSIGHT, which explores this connection in depth.

We will be joined live on-air by Pella Thiel, ecopsychologist and knowledge expert in the UN Harmony with Nature initiative. Pella champions a vision of the future where forests, rivers, lakes, and other parts of the living world are afforded legal rights on par with those given to humans. Learn more about the legal revolution she is a part of, which seeks to fundamentally restructure how we relate to the biosphere.

Following our talk with Pella we are joined in the studio by Martin Kruse, senior advisor at CIFS, to discuss why safeguarding ecosystems is no longer just a moral imperative, but an economic one as well.

Hosted by Casper Skovgaard Petersen, Head of Publications at the Institute.

This issue of FARSIGHT explores this connection in depth and examines the risks we take if we do not shift course from exploitation to regeneration. Read about the new frontiers of biomimetics, far-future climate scenarios, geoengineering, ecological forecasting, a future where nature has rights comparable to those of humans, and more.
