Our world is increasingly in motion. The unprecedented pace, scale, and complexity of movement on our planet—particularly of humans, plants and animals—present a diverse suite of challenges and opportunities that play out across local, regional, national, and international scales. Our infrastructure, urban design, housing stock, disaster relief programs, legal frameworks, business models, and international geo-political systems need to accommodate the dynamic (and increasing) movements of human and non-human species into ways of thinking and relating to each other, and to the world. Only through an interdisciplinary, multi-species, and systems-level perspective can we understand the causes and consequences of migration today. Only through such an understanding can we influence the way that migration is studied, governed, and even experienced.
