Humankind is in a state of ecological crisis. Indonesian director Garin Nugroho explores this issue in his performance The Planet – A Lament. Commonland, an NGO which works with farmers, businesses, and locals to revitalise landscapes, is making a hands-on effort to tackle this problem in various places in the world, taking a holistic approach. The organisation works with local communities to set up large-scale, multi-year programmes centred on landscape recovery, collaboration and providing access to ecological knowledge. In this approach, science and social change go hand in hand. But can we still turn the tide and maintain a habitable planet? And who is responsible for the changes that need to be made? Nugroho and Commonland will be sitting down to talk about just that.
