This is a concept for a collaborative online space to support the work of the Planetary Regeneration project.
It has the potential to connect work across the ten active project sites and provides a repository for data and documentation.
Environmental philosophers and psychologists have long argued that reconnecting humans to nature is key to responding to the unprecedented environmental changes currently occurring. The acceleration of human activities in the Anthropocene is testing the relationship between humans and nature on a global scale; landscape-scale tree mortality events, for example, are occurring globally with increasing frequency. However, decisions on what to conserve, which trees to plant where, and how to best manage our ecosystems are challenging and require ethical, cultural and historical understanding in addition to scientific insight. Further, many aspects of the worlds ecosystems remain mysterious and alien; scientific methods are only beginning to understand how environments sense and respond to their biotic and abiotic environment. This new scientific understanding has prompted a surge of interest within the humanities, with inevitable discomfort as scientific studies are interpreted and re-framed.
This project will take a creative-led transdisciplinary approach to the challenge of planetary regeneration through the creation of a new initiative in the field of ecoacoustics. The initiative will bring together leading creative researchers to design and test new approaches in the form of acoustically-assisted planetary regeneration to optimise current efforts. Specifically, the initiative will design and test acoustic tools in terrestrial and aquatic environments across 10 sites, ultimately aiming to develop and deploy a set of tools that would be available to industry, individuals, and government entities to improve regeneration practices.

Can we save the world, one tree at a time?
The battlefront is not only to save the forests we have left, but to revegetate the spaces humanity has already taken over...
