Committee

Hunnie is a refreshing and innovative research into the relationship between man and nature. It offers an innovative perspective on this relationship, in contrast to the somewhat dogmatic and conservative approach of existing nature organizations. The project breaks with the classical methods of research. Hunnie is a fieldwork research in which interventions in nature are created which act as 'conversation pieces'. As a result of this, the target group within which attention to nature is asked is growing.
