It’s rumbling in the Dutch landscape and in municipal meeting rooms, because the wolf is back. How welcome is the wolf in the Netherlands and what does the comeback of the wolf say about our view of nature? An evening about the fragmentation of habitats and the art of observation.

Humans like to put themselves at the center, with all the consequences this entails. The return of the wolf to the Netherlands says something about our behavior compared to wild animals and nature. Our dominance in the world is leaving its mark: causes of climate change, fragmentation of habitat, the extinction of plant and animal species on an enormous scale and the disappearance of key species from ecosystems. And it starts with the way we view nature.

Projecting human behavior and traits onto animals – better known as anthropomorphic thinking – is a persistent reflex. An important step is learning to think with animals, without projecting our own human fussiness onto them. What perspective – and changes to ourselves – are needed to do this? How can we elevate observation to an art? Perhaps then there will even be room to leave animals alone.

An evening in cooperation with Singel Publishers focusing on Tijs Goldschmidt’s new publication ‘Wolven op het ruiterpad’
