Our projects

Ecogeographer brings together ongoing and completed projects ranging in size from small projects with like-minded individuals and collectives to large undertakings with more-than-profit businesses, charities, trusts and galleries. All these projects focus on innovation in the field of art, design, sustainability and deal with landscape-based issues.
