Many students are unaware that common, everyday activities place a demand on nature. From buying and consuming food, to putting plastic packaging in the trash, to purchasing fast fashion clothing. Further, many students have little understanding of the scale and impacts of industrial land use operations such as digging, drilling and mining and man-made structures such as the Three Gorges Dam in China.

The Anthropocene Education Program presents an opportunity for students to learn the history and science behind the Anthropocene and understand just how much humans are changing Earth’s natural systems. To this end, the Program incorporates immersive technology such as augmented and virtual reality, and new media such as interactive art and film. Students will be taken on a one-of-a-kind journey that encourages a thoughtful understanding of different human-environment interactions around the world.
