Feedback from the “Seeds of a Good Anthropocene: A Southern African Perspective” workshop







Feedback from the “Seeds of a Good Anthropocene: A Southern African Perspective” workshop

Last week, on the 3rd and 4th of November, more than 60 academics, practitioners, and students from around South Africa gathered at the Stellenbosch Institute for Advanced Studies (STIAS) for an open science dialogue on the “Seeds of a Good Anthropocene: A Southern African Perspective”, organized by SAPECS and the Centre for Studies in Complexity.

The Anthropocene is a new planetary era in which the extent of human impact on the Earth and its systems has come to rival the great forces of nature. There is growing recognition that dramatic socio‐cultural, political and technological changes are required to achieve a “Good Anthropocene” – a future that meets the deeply intertwined developmental and environmental needs of society.
