The Anthropocene, the new geological epoch that has now arrived, represents a profound rupture in the history of the Earth and in the history of humankind. We have become powerful enough to change the course of the Earth, yet we seem unable to control ourselves, and continue on a perilous path. Will humankind come together in the common task of repairing a disrupted planet … or are we unable to live together on this Earth? A poster in the Paris metro says: “Nature doesn’t need humankind”. But is that true?
Clive Hamilton, Professor of Public Ethics at Charles Sturt University in Canberra, will give a public lecture on these issues and will discuss his theses.
