Being at once local and global, background and foreground, human and natural, nurturer of humanity and nurtured by humanity, anthropogenic landscapes have emerged across the Earth as the result of sustained direct human interactions with ecosystems. Ranging from stewardship to emergence, engineering and design, we explore modes of engagement in shaping a better Anthropocene by co-creating landscapes within which both human and non-human nature can thrive.

Developed by Elena Bougleux (Research Center on Anthropology and Epistemology of Complexity, University of Bergamo), Arno Brandlhuber (Akademie der Bildenden Künste, Nuremberg/architect, Berlin), and Erle Ellis (Department of Geography and Environmental Systems, University of Maryland, Baltimore).
