More than 30 leading academics and researchers from around the world will converge on campus from Wednesday 9 December to take part in a conversation that will define and dictate our future – the Big History Anthropocene Conference.
International and Australian expert speakers will tackle the challenges of the ‘Anthropocene’, the current era where the earth systems are now dramatically altered by humans.
Speakers from a diverse range of disciplines will tackle climate change, biodiversity, sustainability, and the changing face of law and economics during the Anthropocene.
Staff are welcome to attend and will have the opportunity to engage with Macquarie experts and international academic leaders to explore significant global challenges and potential solutions.
“Are we close to a tipping point on the issue of climate change? The Big History Anthropocene conference will bring together scholars from many different disciplines to discuss some of the major global challenges of the next few decades – challenges that are also being tackled at the Paris conference on climate change. Do consider joining us,” says Big History founder Professor David Christian.
