Economic Transition in the Anthropocene: Ensuring a Just and Sustainable Future for Humanity

This conference will explore today’s political-economy and its role in shaping the Anthropocene and our future. We will explore questions relating to power, such as who gets what and why, how power becomes concentrated, and how can we increase opportunity and fairness while displacing entrenched vested interests. We will also investigate whether and how business as usual can enable us to live safely within the boundaries of nature, the ultimate arbiter of human well-being. Feel free to come during any part of the conference if you are unable to attend the full duration.This event is free and open to the public.
