All our Nests :

Where new ideas and practices hatch

The Nests are carefully curated site-specific platforms for interaction and collaboration in order to explore particular topics or questions relating to birds in depth. We have five themes that will be explored in the different Nests :

  1. Territory/space
  2. Migration/border crossing,
  3. Interspecies collaboration between humans and birds,
  4. Birds in language and literature and
  5. Attitudes, values and prejudice towards different bird species.

Our dialogue with ornithologists helped to identify four overarching concerns causing challenges
for many bird species :

  • Increase of monoculture farmland
  • Industrial forestry practices,
  • Hunting practices
  • Impact of climate change
