Human development in a "good" Anthropocene

Professor Garry Peterson, Stockholm Resilience Centre

Beginning in large scale with the industrial revolution, humanity is now influencing every aspect of the Earth and the biosphere on a scale that matches the great forces of nature. A growing number of scientists think we have entered a new geological era -- the Anthropocene.

In connection with the Volvo Environment Prize Ceremony in Stockholm 2013, this seminar explored different challenges in the context of the Anthropocene for societal development and human wellbeing.
