#26 – Large Scale Ecosystem Restoration

Nicolas Rotundo

Botanical Heart and Mechanical Mind

 

In this podcast we unfold:

  • The landscape-level projects Nicolas Rotundo has been involved in and the main takeaways of his advisory and developments.
  • Taking into account the current state of affairs of the multi-crises we are facing, building landscape-scale business models to regenerate large swaths of land – as well as preserving nature – is of tantamount interest. We will share our personal attitudes towards what we think about truly being able to restore large – and ultra-large-scale.
  • For large-scale ecosystem restoration, we need to involve a myriad of disciplines, from biology to investing, sociology, and anthropology to Web3, from conflict mediation to designing, implementation, and project management. We see creative tension, and things really moving forward, which is exciting. However, what are the main pitfalls we see happening in the sector?

But this is not carved in stone. We can truly sense into the soul of a property and feel into what that space within its given surrounding really wants to serve for. And create the circumstances that enable a broad variety of stakeholders to cocreate a place full of abundance including the arts and take sustainability really to the next level.

#8 Facilitating large scale cultural change (#2)

How can we facilitate the many chrysalis cells for the emerging, regenerative paradigm that are so far often not connected, when already aligning groups is quite challenging? We truly need groups of groups that share a common North Star, all while they still pursue their own goals, obviously. This is an undertaking that has never been done before on a global scale. But we know leaps in history are possible, from the abolition of slavery, the women’s liberations movement, the end of Apartheid, the fall of the Berlin wall.

#7 The Politics of Waking Up

What could be a new way to imagine politics?
In this episode we are diving deep into the weeds of Citizen Action Networks (CAN). We reflect how much of the inner worlds we all inhabit, from the trauma we hold, to the memetic center of gravities that steer our perception of reality, to the culture we need to nourish, for a “Politics of Waking Up”.

#5 Debunking Meditation as a Panacea for Everything
