Seeds of the Good Anthropocene: A Southern African Perspective

06-10-2014
As part of the larger Future Earth initiative this open dialogue hopes to gather African perspectives on different, positive futures for the Earth, the environment and human well-being. These futures will be scoped for sustainability options and solutions, so-called "seeds", which could then potentially be developed to help realise a good Anthropocene. The dialogue will feature prominent regional and international thinkers, and will be limited to 75 participants. Applicants are required to submit an abstract of potential future "seeds" with their application form by 30 September 2014.
