Giving a new meaning to sustainable development
Our Mission
We aspire to develop ethical principles for the Anthropocene, where all forms of life and intelligence will be able to thrive in harmony with each other and the Planet.
Anthropocene Epoch is a community of researchers, educators and communications professionals working together to advance the understanding of the ongoing environmental, social and technological changes and their ethical implications.
We have borrowed our name from the proposed geological period in the Earth history, when humanity has become the primary driving force shaping the future of the planet.
Our belief
Recent research has suggested the existence of cultural learning in non-human animals, and if the technological advances to build a general artificial intelligence succeed, we may have to deal with techno-based culture. We believe that in the new era we need new guiding ethical principles to ensure a better future for people and planet.
What we do
Research and reports
We engage in a wide range of research projects aimed to measure anthropogenic impact on terrestrial and marine ecosystems, assess social and economic implication of AI, and develop ethical principles for the Anthropocene
Field trips and expeditions
We take part in field trips, study tours and research expeditions to biodiversity hotspots and hi-tech hubs to advocate our research enhance better understanding of the most critical challenges of the Anthropocene. Our geography encompasses Brazil and the Russian Far East, Altai and California, Caucasus and Singapore
Public talks, lectures and round tables
To promote science to the wider audiences, we arrange public talks, lectures, and meetups, inviting top experts and speakers from around the globe
