Waste management system needs to be improved as you read this. Our world is gradually becoming overpopulated and more and more interconnected. The defining challenge of the 21st Century is demanding new forms of global cooperation. The paradox of a unified global economy and divided  national societies poses the single greatest threat for our planet. And although there are appropriate waste management solutions, the main problem is the global framework that should put them in place where they are most needed. Let’s try to create it.

For three years Strelka’s public programs have focused on the changes taking place in Moscow, but our field of study is by no means limited to the capital. The «Thinning«, «Energy» and «Hinterland« research studios have been engaged with nation-wide problems, and much student work has been devoted to the country’s borders.

Border areas are the ultimate terra incognita. In Russia, the «border zone» is not simply a narrow strip of land along the national frontier. It covers as much as 3 to 5 percent of the country’s entire territory and is home to about one million people. In some places the »border zone» takes in entire regions. But no definitive map of these areas is publicly available, and the total land area classified as part of the border zone changes almost every year.

Alongside the visible changes of everyday events, there is something that is often overlooked in public discussion. Long-term cycles, complex phenomena, and large-scale processes radically change our lives via barely noticeable shifts in the world. What lies beyond the horizon of our immediate notice, and what visual aids do we need to see it? What do we know about Russia, and how is that knowledge possible?

Since one person cannot simultaneously look to either side, at the road under his feet and straight ahead, Strelka is bringing together people with different views, expertise and interests.
