Teaching the Anthropocene

  • Ca’ Foscari University Venice Italy (map)

Festival for the Earth

This presentation will be a hands-on workshop to examine both the ways that the Anthropocene presents new challenges for education and to discuss the tools and techniques for responding to this challenge. This presentation will focus on the importance of open knowledge, open access, “commoning,” and public scholarship in developing new modes of formal and informal education for the Anthropocene.

The Festival for the Earth is conceived by Maria Rebecca Ballestra and co-produced by her company MbR Art (incorporated in the Principality of Monaco) and Ca’ Foscari University in Venice, in partnership with the Prince Albert II Foundation – Monaco, the Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change (CMCC).
