First series of Alive in the Anthropocene talks available online

March 2021

In January 2021, in partnership with, we organised a series of four freely available talks under the theme of 'Alive in the Anthropocene'.

With these talks we want to contribute to the reflection about what it means to be alive in the Anthropocene. 'Alive' resonates with survival, yes, but also with aliveness, liveliness, a certain quality of life, vitality, resilience. Can we become better, more benign residents on this planet? We are convinced that an answer to this question requires a revaluation of all values. We need new questions, new language, a new understanding of ourselves. 

For this first series of AitA talks, we invited four thinker-doers to reflect on new or forgotten systemic sensibilities:

  • Alder Keleman-Saxena
  • Andri Snaer Magnason
  • Lois Holzman
  • Kris Pint
