This talk by environmental anthropologist Pierre du Plessis explores the skilled practice of tracking as a method for noticing and theorizing landscape change. Beginning with an overview of my work in the Kalahari Desert, Botswana, he shows how tracking involves an attunement to broader landscape relations in ways that exceed the exclusive relationship to animals usually associated with tracking.

How may we grasp meaning beyond the boundaries of biological species? In this talk philosopher Dominique Lestel, will explore ‘zoo-futurism’ as setting up the basis of an ego-ecology – to incarnate and to feel biodiversity not from the point of view of the first person, but from the point of view of a first person; to feel its richness and importance from a personal point of view.

Artist and activist Jordan Seiler talks us through his text ´Reaffirming Engagement´, which considers the artistic and activist strategies of ´subvertising´ as a means of breathing life back into our streets post-covid-19. In particular, he´ll shed light on how this form of civil disobedience challenges the dominant narratives presented to us in our shared public spaces, and how a civic-media alternative is beneficial to the health and well-being of a city and its inhabitants.

Impatient to act, we are wary of anything that looks like time-wasting, and an action demanding as much time and patience as attention inevitably slows things down. Yet slowness is not opposed to change; changing human behaviour is slow work, and change in human behaviour is now what is at stake. Simone Kotva, research fellow at the Faculty of Theology at UiO, shares her perspectives.

The tropical rainforest is the most diverse terrestrial ecosystem on Earth, it is a symbol of the exuberance of life and Creation, it has spiritual meaning for indigenous peoples and forest dwellers, it is home to hundreds of millions of people, and it makes up an immense carbon sink without which the world will not reach its climate goals. In this Environmental Lunchtime Discussion, Simon Rye, shares his perspectives on religions' and indigenous people's efforts to end the destruction of tropical rainforests.

Frits Thaulow (1847-1906) was in his own time often referred to as the painter of "the Stream, the Snow and the Night." To this one can add "Smoke". In many of his most captivating landscapes, Thaulow captured signs of modern industry such as smoke from factory chimneys, and steam from trains. Øystein Sjåstad, associate professor in art history at the Department of Philosophy, Classics, History of Art and Ideas offers his perspectives on the beautification of pollution.

The UK Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) estimates that 75% of UK consumers' carbon emissions come from the use of products and services. We also know that 80% of the environmental impacts of those products and services are determined in the early stages of design (EU). These two figures tell us that sustainability is chiefly about stuff and that the impacts of products or services are pretty much designed-in (or out for that matter) from the very outset; “Design is the problem as well as the solution”. Jannicke Hølen, programme leader Innovation for All, and Knut Bang, Senior Advisor of Design at DOGA (Design og arkitektur Norge), propose the following: If environmentalism's success was in spotlighting sustainability problems to the world, the success of design will be in helping deliver solutions.
