A lecture-walk aimed at reshaping our focus, questioning established perceptions of urban nature, and recognizing the often overlooked non-human inhabitants of our surroundings. Embracing the ethos of citizen science, we will talk about mapping the biodiversity within the local ecosystem via iNaturalist project. We will explore the realms of lichen, algae, and fungi, their unique roles, survival strategies, and the political significance behind their exploration.

Note: The walk takes place at the Sonian forest. More information about the meeting point will be sent to participants via email.
