Economic Transition in the Anthropocene: Ensuring a Just and Sustainable Future for Humanity


April 24-26, 2019

Beckman Center of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine

This conference will explore today’s political-economy and its role in shaping the Anthropocene and our future. We’ll explore questions relating to power, such as who gets what and why, how power becomes concentrated, and how can we increase opportunity and fairness while displacing entrenched vested interests. We’ll also investigate whether and how business as usual can enable us to live safely within the boundaries of nature, the ultimate arbiter of human well-being.
