Multispecies Care Practice in times of Covid-19
Window Treatments are mutlispecies care practices that are developed in a time of being in quarantine. What means Living during the time of isolation? For me, for us, of my neighbors humans and non-humans? Your neighbors you live in your building becomes amplified. The streets are quieter and a blooming flower becomes your intimacy. We are supposed on Pause meanwhile plants grow. The air feels lighter and fresher since the construction took hold in the city. Can this time to be “re-evaluation of all values”. What kind of skills I may have to develop? What language? What daily practice. I invite you to try some of the protocols and even make your own. They are here to attune, notice, listen and amplify your interaction with your local multispecies beeings. They here to share with others so we all can become a mutlispecies community. Our Living Archive of Sharing may encourage us for future action that involves a community of multispecies actors in the decision making how do we want our cities to be towards making more space for life. Thanks for your Participation._ andrea haenggi and urban spontaneous plants
