Our Planet, Our Problem (NYC)
Welcome to the Anthropocene: From Global Challenge to Planetary Stewardship. The 2014 AESS conference is headed to Pace’s NYC Campus in June.
We’ve got the whole world in our hands. On June 11–14, Pace University will host the 2014 Association for Environmental Studies and Sciences (AESS) conference, co-sponsored by Pace Academy for Applied Environmental Studies and Pace Institute for Environmental and Regional Studies.
The conference theme “Welcome to the Anthropocene: From Global Challenge to Planetary Stewardship” focuses on the argument advanced by many scholars that Earth has entered a new geological epoch, the Anthropocene (the recent age of humans). This perspective contends that humans have become a global geophysical force capable of disrupting the grand cycles of biology, chemistry, and geology by which elements like carbon and nitrogen circulate between land, sea, and atmosphere. This disruption is resulting in profound alteration of the planet's climate, serious threats to a large array of species, and critical ecosystems and conversion of fertile lands to desert.
The four-day event, which brings people from around the world, will include workshops, roundtable discussions, plenaries, films, field trips, poster sessions, a banquet, and more. Pace Academy Senior Fellow for Environmental Understanding Andrew Revkin will give the keynote address on paths to a “good” Anthropocene.
Poster presentations by members of the Pace Community include environmental studies student Melody Flores on Assisted Migration at the Community and environmental science student Hillary Bundick and forensic science Professor Elmer-Rico E. Mojica, PhD, on Emerging Contaminants Are New Threats to the Environment.
