Building peace in the minds of men and women

IGCP 732 "LANGUAGE of the Anthropocene (LANGUAGE - Lessons in anthropogenic impact: a knowledge network of geological signals to unite and assess global evidence of the Anthropocene)"

Brief outline of the project

The Anthropocene establishes a powerful concept associated with unprecedented global change. Both recognizing and managing this novel situation in a sustainable way requires a planetary network and accompanying knowledge framework. This project aims to engage new ideas and networks in the development of the Anthropocene concept by cooperating globally with scientists, especially those in developing and less developed countries. The core aims are to unite and assess global evidence of the Anthropocene and to establish the Anthropocene as a fertile framework for future geosciences. This will be achieved by 1) developing a network of expertise and project partners globally; 2) designing and running workshops in developing countries; and 3) designing and collating an open database of existing information and expertise on the Anthropocene.
