Springtij Forum & Waddenlaboratoriumin collaboration with Peter op 't Holt, Keimpe Wieringa, Helga van Leur, and Stientje van Veldhoven

As part of the Springtij Forum and Waddenlaboratorium, three workshops challenged participants to connect with the forest and listen to this “non-human entity”: what do you hear, see, and feel? Participants walked barefoot in silence, collected material from the four stages of the forest’s life cycle, and wrote down what the forest had to tell them. These texts formed the starting point for a conversation about the meaning of this personal question in relation to larger social issues such as deforestation, the nitrogen crisis, and climate change.
