Introducing the Anthropocene epoch

Professor Will Steffen, Australian National University Climate Change Institute

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.
