Session 7: Landscape Transformation

Saturday 28 February

10:30 - 12:30

Paradiso, Main Hall

Humans have built cities, physical infrastructures, roads and railways and electricity grids. Through agriculture humans have changed the face of the Earth dramatically. Humans have also created artificial islands from sand, turned lakes into polders, valleys into lakes, diverted the courses of rivers, and through irrigation made lakes into deserts. In this panel we examine some of these ‘efforts’ at radical landscape transformation and their consequences, and will see the Earth from possibly surprising but all-to-real perspectives.
