Understanding, managing and improving human-environment interactions is amongst the most pressing chal- lenges of our time. However, this is a wicked problem that we need to approach from multiple perspectives. I will outline a series of case-studies in inter- and transdisciplinary soundscape research: from validating ecoacoustic metrics in temperate UK woodlands, through wilderness mapping in the Swedish Arctic and community-led reef restoration in Indonesia to indigenous-led cultural heritage projects in the Ecuadorian Amazon. In doing so I aim to illustrate the value of integrating different forms of knowledge across disciplines, everyday and indigenous practices and speculate that triangulating ecological theory and computational methods with human experience might point to valuable new approaches to ecoaoustic analysis and even inspire fresh consideration of core con- servation imperatives, in order to better align the anthroposphere and biosphere for the benefit of all.
