NOW
IS OUR
TIME

Living in the Anthropocene means that basically all the problems, all the challenges we face on a planetary scale are caused by... ourselves.

Anthropocene

During the industrial period the world population has increased from 1 billion to almost 8 billion of people. Human beings are intervening in the natural processes of our planet. We live in the human age.

Full world

In the "empty world", the planet was able to compensate for human actions. Now we live in the "full world". It is the decision of human beings whether the planet allows us to survive.

Planetary boundaries

Science defines nine stress areas in the "full world". We are crossing safe boundaries in more and more of them, at an ever-increasing speed.

Hothouse earth

If we do not succeed in ending the burning of fossil fuels in the shortest possible time, we will enter a hot period unlike anything the earth has experienced for 3 million years, with unforeseeable consequences for us all.
