“Anthropocene & Age of Consumption”

The Anthropocene started as a proposed geological epoch but it has quickly developed into an existential planetary challenge beyond the preservation of our biosphere by representing disruption and convergence of planetary life support systems with the technological, economic, cultural and psychological limits of human existence.

"Anthropocene" or "Capitalocene"? How can the consumerist basis and perpetual growth requirement of present macro-economic system be addressed? Are there any alternative social innovations challenging this age of consumption?

Those and other questions will be discussed at our participatory debate.
