Anthropocene

Newcastle University Anthropocene Research Group aims to develop and foster innovative, transformative ways of working in order to analyse and design sustainable transdisciplinary responses to intensifying global change.

Anthropocene Research at Newcastle University aims to
  • Deliver world-leading, trans-disciplinary research
  • Provide a new and transformative approach to analysis of risk and opportunity in a rapidly changing world
  • Designing sustainable responses to intensifying global change across human, engineered and natural systems in the Anthropocene


“The anthropocene is a way of reimagining the world.  The power is in the idea.  Much as the renaissance and the enlightenment changed the way people thought, the anthropocene could shape thinking going forward. We can rethink the way the world works - but only if we want to.”

(David Biello, 2016)
