The Spaceship Earth Research Project–TSERP

Economy is culture; it is a system of common believes,of values and issues; in this field decisions take place.In our proposal we consider humanity as an comunity left on a spaceship.The limitation of resources impose to the future world to accept and find out a way to survive.Once,aware of the limit of our present model of globalization,we need new model of ecology,production and consumption to survive,to have the opportunity of building the society of future. Design can be defined as a close-up look at things in the world and the representations that people make of them..It can therefore also be considered as a close-up look at large things,entire territories,or even as a means of zooming-in on small,infinitesimal things.TSERP propose a reflection on this two sides of scale.In one hand we have the unbelivable growth of urban areas in Asia in the last 25 years; megalopolis of millions of people rapidly growt because of a new and unknown historical fenomenous. On the other hand we can consider the indigenous peoples,nomads and vulnerable communities as common heritage of knowledge to preserve,to better know.Between many small comunities and indigenous people here we like to list indigenous peoples in Arakan,in Myanmar; Beizifu community of Keerqin Sandy Land in Inner Mongolia; the Badjo,sea nomads who live around the different island nations of Southeast Asia.Communities of Bulgan aimag and Uvurkhangai in Mongolia; Bakarwal nomads with their goat herds,mules and dogs travel throughout the year in search of pastures in northern parts of Pakistan.They walk approximately 1800 km during their annual migrations and graze their herds in four distinct ecological zones; the sea-nomadic Sama Dilaut (also known as Bajau); all those and more are affected by climate change in a number of ways,their communities have intimate knowledge of the sea,of the earth,of climate changing and are highly dependent on it.At same time they can show ecological different way of adaptation.
