A multispecies paper in Global Sustainability

FEAST HQ WG6_Publications

An interdisciplinary team led by Senior Researcher Dr. Christoph Rupprecht (FEAST Project) has co-authored a paper titled “Multispecies Sustainability” and it is now published on the international journal “Global Sustainability”.

In this research, the team identified a contradiction at the core of sustainability: its resource management approach ignores that the well-being and needs of all living beings is interdependent in ecologically complex ways, and thus revealed a new definition of sustainability that expands the concept to non-human species and their needs. They also showcased potential applications that help enable human-wildlife coexistence and radically rethink urban greenspace design based on recent microbiome and public health insights.
