Terraforming Earth is a series of lectures and design labs about twenty-first-century society. The premise is that political and economic systems should be conceived and designed in a radically different way in order to create an environment  for a society of plants, animals, people and machines to sustain itself and to thrive. An important complicating factor in this scenario is that the feasibility of new systems is always first tested in the ‘market’, while the way the ‘market’ is organised is responsible for the succession of crises currently affecting planet Earth.

Terraforming Earth Talks

The Terraforming Earth talks by Jaya Klara Brekke and Jay Springett were the public start of the Terraforming Earth programme, a series of lectures and design labs about 21st-century society.   

Lab 1: Constitution of a 21st Century

The goal of this Lab was to explore the potential of the notion of ‘legal person’ to incorporate non-humans.
