Diskussion, Round Table

The idea of Anthropocene was coined in Europe and has been spreading

from Europe around the world. Different regions show different reactions

to a world of climate change, natural disasters and human induced damage

to the environment. On the basis of a recent film from Japan our

discussants will introduce East Asian approaches to the Anthropocene and

will voice their opinion on why it is important for us to understand

these non-European approaches.
