Have we become so potent a force on Earth that a geological epoch should have our name? Can there be any kind of good path for our species in a time of such rapid and disruptive environmental change? Andrew Revkin, a prize-winning journalist and author who helped coin the term Anthropocene and has reported on humanity's growing pains for more than 30 years, describes his learning journey, from the Amazon to the North Pole to the Vatican. He offers a prescription that is both unnerving and hopeful.

The talk took place on 20 November 2018 and was moderated by Kristian Cedervall Lauta.

The event was organised by the Sustainability Science Centre at the University of Copenhagen, as a part of the Sustainability Lecture Series.
