Nature is Culture
Our commitment to supporting change in this field is through research as design, rooted in the idea of community-led design and ecosystem protection through the 'shared planet' approach, because we believe that nature is culture. We are interested in looking at what intersectional research and proposition in the fields of digital design technologies can offer to specific contexts. We will test the relevance of ideas of the new wealth economy, alternative value systems, ecosystems services, AI and self-governance, micro-currencies, digital literacy in remote areas, and blockchain technologies for legal and political decentralisation.
Natural habitats (flora and fauna) and cultural habitats (people), will be mapped in detail with a focus on intersectionalities, to propose new value systems for justice-driven natural and social capital.
