Land and public space

Traditionally dominant paradigms of power have involved extractive, disconnected, inanimate relationships with the land, in part also because the land, “Mother Earth”, has been frequently gendered as feminine. Within new understandings of power, how can our relationship with land change too? What are alternative, whether new or historical and ancestral, ways of situating and embedding ourselves in land? How do we redefine our relationship to and with the ecosystems, spaces, and communities we are inhabiting?
