OPEN CALL 2. 10th Januari/ 28th februari

co-evolution between humans and nature Noosphere

The noosphere is a philosophical concept developed and popularized by the biogeochemist 
Vladimir Vernadsky, and the French philosopher Pierre Teilhard de Chardin at the beginning of the 20th century. Vernadsky defined the noosphere as the sphere of interaction between society and nature, within which reasonable human activity becomes the determining factor of development. Just as life, which appeared in the depths of inorganic nature, and began to shape the appearance of the world, creating new geological layers, leaving giant deposits on top of rocks of inorganic origin, so the human being is increasingly reconstructing the world, including everything that exists around them in their activities. Having been used in some evolutionary concepts, the noosphere describes the mind as a special natural phenomenon. The emergence of the human mind is a qualitatively new stage in the evolution of living matter, the transition of evolution from the biological phase to the social. Humans do not adapt to the environment, as other animals, but change and subordinate it to themselves. The noosphere is the result of the activity of all human beings, starting from the very moment of their appearance. Today, the topic of ecology and human impact is becoming more and more centralized throughout the world. This hot-button issue is not new in its rhetoric, but is becoming harder to ignore. We invite photographers to think and share their ideas of environmental adventurism in relation to potential co-evolution between humans and nature. Is the concept of noosphere still able to exist? We encourage you to find a visual language that could express the possibility of harmonious co-existence of humans and nature and, as a result, the co-evolution of nature and society.
