From the Anthropocene to the Ecozoic. By Jon Erickson
We’re excited to announce a new monthly webinar series: “From the Anthropocene to the Ecozoic” (A2E). The aim is to highlight the work of graduate students, faculty, and collaborators in the Economics for the Anthropocene and Leadership for the Ecozoic graduate research and training partnerships. The term “Anthropocene” is used by geologists to distinguish our current reality of a human-dominated geological epoch. The “Ecozoic” is an aspirational term coined by the eco-theologian Thomas Berry as a call for a new era of mutually beneficial relations between humans and all of life. In this monthly series, we’ll discuss the research and action that could inspire, enable, and co-create a flourishing Earth community. Webinars will be livecast via Zoom on the last Wednesday of the month from 12 to 1 pm Eastern Daylight Time. Talks are designed to be short research overviews (usually 3 per session) with ideas on actionable outcomes. Recordings will be posted at the A2E YouTube Playlist for further sharing and discussion. We hope to see you virtually soon!
