> And if you’ve forgotten, here is the story so far…
> The Treaty of Finsbury Park 2025 <https://treaty.finsburypark.live/> is a collaborative project that depicts the story of the dawning of interspecies democracy. It’s a new era of equal rights for all living beings, where all species come together to organise and shape the environments and cultures they inhabit, in Finsbury Park (and urban green spaces across the UK, the world, and beyond!). Like many urban parks, Finsbury Park is fraught with environmental issues from noxious gases and traffic noises to governance struggles and financial sustainability.
> 
> If colonial systems of dominance and control over living beings continue we all face an apocalypse.
> 
> Based around a set of LARPs - or live action role play games - the Treaty of Finsbury Park 2025 is an immersive fiction played from more-than-human perspectives. Powered by the Sentience Dial <https://treaty.finsburypark.live/?page_id=9> it encourages the blooming of a bountiful biodiversity born of interspecies political action. Think like a dog, bee or even grass and help change the way we all see and participate in our local urban green spaces FOREVER
> 
> There are 3 parts to the story of the Treaty of Finsbury Park
> 
> Part 1. 2021-2022. The Interspecies Assemblies - these were games where everyone got to plan the Interspecies Festival of Finsbury Park 2023 - an event which to celebrate the drawing up of the treaty itself.
> 
> Part 2. 2023. The Interspecies Festival of Finsbury Park - all the species of Finsbury Park are invited to join the festival in Summer 2023. Everyone then will be invited to choose from a set of proposed Treaty obligations and share their priorities and feelings.
> 
> Part 3. 2023-25. The Treaty of Finsbury Park - a treaty of interspecies cooperation will go on display at Furtherfield Gallery along with Festival highlights and an invitation to ALL park users to pledge their support to bountiful biodiversity in Finsbury Park.
> 
> By planning the Interspecies Festival together, human people from the locality and around the world have been engaged in building empathy pathways to other beings. They have been learning about what really matters to them and their habitats. They have been intensively exploring what it might mean to acknowledge the equal rights of more-than-human beings. They have drafted the Treaty and decided how to connect even more deeply with all the species of the park through a festival for all.
