Interview with SENSE director Philipp Pattberg about the important role of politics in the Anthropocene in Bureau de Helling (the GroenLinks think tank) Philipp Pattberg, Professor of Transnational Environmental Governance and Policy believes that the Anthropocene needs long-term politics on all levels. Some questions are complex, some solutions are not nice to hear. This is why the discussion about how we want our future to look like is so important.

The award will (in June) consist of €100,000 prize money, a diploma and a commemorative artwork. The announcement took place on February 7th.
