Theory is an essential part of our mission. We live in the Anthropocene, a time when a radical reconsideration of the values of Western modernity has become inevitable. Accordingly, we partner with leading researchers from the academy to help us connect our community's technological innovations and creative expressions with philosophical and theoretical underpinnings. An ecological future needs to be built on a fundamental reconsideration of our conceptual categories such as the separation of humans and nature, scientific mastery and techno-solutionism.
Against this background, we engage deeply with the complex issues involved in global, international, national and local governance as applied to ecological spheres. We're committed to thinking outside the box of traditional protectionist and conservation practices, and towards technology-enabled governance ensuring nature's thriving biodiversity. Our areas of interest in theory include political ecology, ecological philosophy, law, and blockchain technology, as well as algorithmic governance.
