We live in a new era in human and planetary history in which once slow changes, from the increase in global temperatures to loss of biodiversity, now occur at unprecedented rates. Many scientists suggest that we have entered a distinct geologic epoch, called the Anthropocene, named after humanity’s influence on the globe. For scientists and innovators, the Anthropocene presents a new range of challenges. To solve the most pressing challenges facing humanity, scientists must change how they work with those outside of academia, including policy-makers, business leaders, entrepreneurs and other innovators – ensuring that research results and data make it out of scientific journals and into the hands of people that can turn them into real solutions. In this talk, Josh Tewksbury, of the international research program Future Earth, explores the origins of the Anthropocene and the evolving relationships between scientists and innovators.
