The New Wild 
Life in the Abandoned Lands

 
As rural populations age and decline, new and surprising landscapes are appearing across Europe. Farmland lies abandoned, reclaimed by a self-willed natural world: trees are growing where once there were fields; wild animals roam free amongst the debris.

Away from the pull of our economic centres, marginalised regions are witnessing the start of a demographic and cultural collapse. Ways of life become stories, stories become history, and as the city grows the memory fades…

But things grow from the cracks of ruin, and in the cracks of great change are small stories. In an abandoned alpine valley, one village’s precarious attempt to survive offers a series of reflections on our changing relationship with the countryside and as such with the natural world itself.
