Green graphic with the meeting title and participants names.

According to statistics, 60% of animals in the world are domestic animals. Each year about 20 thousand species become extinct. We can already talk about the sixth extinction, although none of the previous five was so rapid or caused by human activity and influence.


The participants reflected on how to take in these information without falling into climate depression. How could we prevent this unprecedented catastrophe? How the end of biodiversity influences our thinking about animals?


The meeting accompanid the “Homing. Włodzimierz Puchalski” exhibition. Puchalski as a photographer immortalised a lot of animal species that are already considered endangered or extinct.


The meeting was registered and broadcast, as well as interpreted into Polish Sign Language.
