About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and German

The wilderness begins at our front door, but we rarely notice. City dwellers today rely more and more on modern technologies and numerous media channels and are increasingly losing the ability to navigate their own environment, let alone the wilderness, without the assistance of an app. Somehow isolated and without reference to other fellow living beings, we become more and more foreign to our basic, everyday lives… and lose contact with nature.

Urban Wilderness is a guide to experiencing nature in the city, to creating an awareness of the fact that we share our urban space with other living beings. Scientific, philosophical, and artistic contributions provide a detailed explanation on the various aspects of urban wilderness and present a differentiated view of the urban environment. In addition, Urban Wilderness offers the interested reader an opportunity to increase his or her own perception of nature and experience the city as more vibrant.
