Together with students from allover Germany and historian Franz Mauelshagen from the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS) I had the pleasure to explore the Anthropocene idea for a week during a so-called “spring academy” of the German National Academic Foundation near Annecy in France. The seminar wasn’t purely theoretical. Guided by geologist Pierre Renaud (orange jacket) we went hiking in Bauges Geoparc and tried to sense the traces of past geological epochs. In their final presentation students brought a variety of scenarios onto the stage how the Anthropocene might play out – ranging from news read from a bunker to life in an eco-utopian society.
