The aim of the art-oriented, multidisciplinary Apart we shall perish project is to highlight the diversity of soilmicrobes and elucidate their potential in soil restoration. The goal is to initiate multidisciplinary research related to soil through community-based, inclusive activities and to create moments for different actors to meet.

The drought and heat brought by climate change, as well as soil pollution and microbial poverty, calls for ways, e.g. for the restoration of urban forests or contaminated land areas. The project deals with the transfer of microbes and its potential to support planting of trees. A forest in a bowl, a communal ritual, the project carries the value of environmental diversity.
