Abstract

The territorialist idea of “taking care of territory” as a living ecosystem (in the double sense of protecting/enhancing and healing it) is consistent with the ecologist proposal of a new alliance with nature supporting the “One Health” approaches: for both, the topic of human health must be (re)integrated into a general eco-urbanism view in which a resumption of co-evolutionary relationship between humans and ecosystems is a necessary precondition for their common survival. In this perspective, our cahiers de doléances may perhaps become an operative to-do list to heal illnesses introduced by Anthropocene.
