Making Peace with the Earth—The Diplomatic Turn
Keywords:Earth, Peace, Precaution, Anthropocene
Considering the proliferation of global systemic risks in the Anthropocene, this short paper expresses the need to reframe sustainability as the acquisition and invention of symbiotic and regenerative diplomatic skills to make peace with the Earth, i.e. to preserve and restore the conditions of its habitability. This post-environmental paradigm shift reflects the deep transformation that is now underway in our understanding of the Earth, not as a planetary system nor as a reservoir of resources, but as a web of meanings and interactions. It manifests the social-ecological as well as the ethical implications of precaution.
