An Ethical Scape allows to sustain our environment in accordance with a rational use of human and non-human resources without taking control over it.

The ability of experts, political and civil societies to forge a Just Landscape despite the global ecosphical warning & narratives, places ourselves into a skeptical position to question intangible infra-politic mechanisms so as to achieve tangible projects and social cohesions.

The recent exponential craze to improve the living environment through the daily life inclusion to the establishment of environmental, social, and spatial justice, as well as the expansion of our cities with respect for sustainable biospheres, allowed to combine our whimsical environmental aesthetics with global ecological ethics in the various planning and community-care policies.

In the same way that globalization projects and resource managements helped to universalize the principles of precaution towards the human and non-human ever increasingly mobile and cross-cultural, the risk to weaken the autochthony to each environment was insinuated by their global spread.

Equally, an environmental monitoring mechanism is reinforced in the SCAPETHICAL design and planning practice evolved through diverse geographies and cultures. The need to stay anchored and participate in the construction of the reality at the whim of projects and research developed in situ can also produce its own critical space questionning the regeneration of local ecosophies, neoliberal ecological disturbances and other laudable but fragile humanism.
