Ecopoesis is a neologism derived from the Greek to describe the creation of an ecosystem. Robert Haynes, a Canadian biophysicist, geneticist, and terraforming expert, first used the term to detail ideas of creating ecosystems on otherwise lifeless planets.
For this symposium, we have adopted and adapted the term to describe how designers, scientists, artists, writers, and other thinkers are working to create human systems more compatible with Earth’s changing natural systems. This symposium is intended as the beginning of a conversation designed to ignite the development of better human systems.
Join us for a series of lectures, events, and an Expoesis Exhibition.
