Where does the city end and nature begin? On Sunday 4th Dec, the transdisciplinary Biosphere Berlin team offers a public walk along the Tegeler See. Join in us in a creative exploration led by artists and researchers of the complex urban biosphere, harvesting insights and new perspectives on ecological and social resilience.

The transdiciplinary Biosphere Berlin project team (Dr. Katja Arzt, Ka Rustler, Sina Ribak, David Behar Perahia and Dan Farberoff), are holding public walks along the forests, lakes and built environment of Berlin’s Tegel neighbourhood. We invite you to walk together with neighbors, curious and open people from the Strandbad Tegeler See, through parts of the Tegeler Forst to Ruder-Club 1886 on the Tegel waterfront. We are:

🌾Dr. Katja Arzt, professor at the University of Sustainable Development Eberswalde (HNEE), who will lead a conversation on community interaction and the importance of positive emotion in connection with nature

🦔 Artist and choreographer Ka Rustler explores the connection of body and nature

🪲Researcher Sina Ribak shares perspectives around thresholds between human and non-human inhabitants

🌻Artist David Behar Perahia who will explore how animal aided design can create solidarity with other species

🌿Artist Dan Farberoff who will introduce the concept of a post-human Commons

The conversation will be both in English & in German.

Bring warm, all-weather clothing, some food to snack on. There will be a lunch break and an opportunity to purchase hot drinks and snacks.

Looking forward to seeing you!

Meeting point at 10:45 at Entrance of Strandbad Tegeler See
Nearest bus stop: Spechtstr. – Linie 222
