The aim of Intervening in a zoöp is to enhance the quality of its zoönomy, in line with its zoönomic ambitions.
The demarcations of the zoöp produce a distinction between internal and external relationships - and both can be subject to Intervening. It became clear in this research that Intervening should strengthen internal relationships first - if that turns out to be necessary and possible - and then look outwards. Zoönomic interventions can address anything from subterranean metabolic relationships, to political campaigns and ownership relations, and more.
Obviously, Intervening leads to new developments in the zoöp and to changes in the qualities of important relationships. Intervening leads to new observations. Sensing new developments may lead to a new characterisation, which may suggest further ways of Intervening. In the timeframe of the research documented here, small interventions were possible in those proto-zoöps that were in the private ownership of the researchers (the proto-zoöp Duindoornplein, the terrace of Paulina Grebenstein), but not in those that were part of public space (Gotskowsky Bruecke), or that involved a high number or different legal entities (Zone Sensible), or that were under the jurisdiction of non-aligned parties (the gardens of Youran Song and Ou Yhanshan).
