Glocal worm-ing: the Earthworm Manifesto

Merve Bektaş

Glocal Worm-ing investigates through design ways to nurture mutual human-soil relations together with earthworms and active citizen-participation to enhance multispecies coexistence in cities.

Through performative storytelling, collective writing and writing, participants will be invited to generate new knowledge and contribute to the co-creation of the Earthworm Manifesto.
