    I was wondering if you would be posting a video of the debut for those of us who unfortunately missed it.

    Thanks for posting this Liam,

    My apologies, again, for asking the same question that Claire Butterfield asked (when I had to step out). However, I’m not sure that either of us managed to express the heart of the matter. If indigenous restorations are not “ecocentric” because they reflect a profound understanding of the interconnectedness of an ecosystem (and that should be an obviously redundant phrase), then why “ecocentric” restoration (period), except as evidence of a kind of preexisting condition of narcissism and faulty logic? (A moment in the painfully slow process of re-membering this interconnectedness.) If it is fundamentally untrue that we can do anything to or for an ecosystem without impacting human beings, the idea of disinterest (though undoubtedly sincere as a motivation) is kind of absurd (unless elaborately qualified). It clashes with the very concept of ecosystem, no?
