Fifty years on from the Stockholm Conference—the 1972 United Nations Conference on the Human Environment—we find ourselves in a world marked by profound, accelerating and possibly irreversible environmental change. No ecosystem is untouched by human influence. And no area of human activity is unaffected by environmental change.
The Anthropocene concept has been advanced to capture this new world. When humanity dangerously disrupts the earth’s biosphere and life-upholding systems, what new insecurities emerge? What, fundamentally, does security mean in the Anthropocene, and how can we deliver it?
In this webinar, the editors and chapter authors of the new volume Anthropocene (In)securities: Reflections on Collective Survival 50 Years After the Stockholm Conference will discuss some of the key issues of security and insecurity raised in the Anthropocene.
This online event is organized by SIPRI, the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) and Mistra Geopolitics.
