8. Science education in the Anthropocene
Thursday 24th August Symposia Session III, 09:00 - 11:00
Mounting research from various disciplines indicates that the human endeavour has shifted the earth into a new geologic epoch: the Anthropocene, the age of mankind. There is evidence that that mankind has become a global driver of the earth systems such as water circulation, climate, biological productivity, biodiversity, geo-biochemical cycles, sedimentation patterns, and overall use of lands and seas.
