Human Nature Relations (Theme Lead: Chris Loynes)
The engagement of people with nature produces a landscape. Personal, social, economic and political actions interact with natural processes, habitats and species in dynamic relations. This theme will take as its subject these relations. Using a critical view, the political processes and their consequences, the natural processes and their consequences, will be examined with the intention of understanding and informing the informal and formal processes of engagement in ways that contribute to social justice and sustainable human nature relations.
