The Anthropocene is the Age of Man: the geological designation for the era in which we live today. Humans and our activities dominate the planet and circumvent nature, irreparably altering many aspects of the Earth’s inbuilt systems: its biosphere, atmosphere, oceans and land masses.

Award-winning geologist Henrik H. Svensen, research professor at the University of Oslo and author of numerous articles on climate change for Morgenbladet, GEO and others, will talk about the cultural and scientific issues at stake in the Age of Man.
