Lunch Lecture by Albert Faber: "The fabricated planet: Life in the Anthropocene"

Date: 25 February 2019
Time: 12:00 - 13:00
Location: Wageningen University, Gaia building, Gaia 1&2

We are living in the Antropocene: the era of humankind. The influence humans have on the status of the earth and all its processes is larger than ever before.

In his book 'The fabricated planet, Life in the Anthropocene' Albert Faber gives meaning to this. He is looking for answers to questions like: what does the Anthropocene imply? How could we be engaging with the planet in an optimal way? What are the challenges this evokes? Albert Faber will present his book during this Lunch Lecture and speak with us about possible perspectives for strategic actions.

Albert Faber works as a strategist with the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate. Before, he has been working with WRR, the Netherlands Scientific Council for Government Policy and the PBL, Netherlands Environment Assessment Agency. He advised on the learning society and on long-term climate policies.
