Thought this might be of interest, relates nicely to yesterday's post 'Cultures of Sustainability conference and HEAT exhibition'.
I like how in one sentence it references 'imagined interactions between humans and their environments' and in the next provides list discussion as the way to 'find out how to ensure our ecosystems survive us'.
Maybe they meant egosystems. :P

*Sustaining Ecologies eList September Discussion*
The Australian Network for Art & Technology (ANAT) is pleased to announce the September discussion on the Synapse elist, an international forum encouraging rumination on contemporary art and science research collaboration.
This month's discussion focuses on the role of artists in bringing to popular consciousness arguably the biggest issue facing this and future
generations: how do we halt the negative impact of humans on their complex and (increasingly) fragile ecosystems? Throughout the month we'll also be pointing to work we think is particularly compelling in its approach to contemporary and imagined interactions between humans and their environments.
To find out how to ensure our ecosystems survive us subscribe to the discussion at www.synapse.net.au
