Changes such as climate change or the loss of biodiversity make it clear to us that we have to change our routines of action fundamentally. The challenge of these transformation processes lies in overcoming comfort zones in the face of uncertainty for the individual as well as for communities and established organizational structures.

How can we join forces and act together?
Within the project “Farming the Uncanny Valley”, we used an artistic approach to develop methods to build bridges between academic knowledge and everyday experiences to question our own actions and thinking. Situational experiences form the common basis for learning experiences, self-reflection and exchange.
This book shows our practical experiences and methodical approaches resulting from dealing with the field of bioeconomy.
