A Compass for the Anthropocene

This video discusses the Anthropocene, the Age of Humanity, a new geological era that began about 200 years ago. Most geological eras last for tens of thousands, if not millions of years. Unfortunately, the Age of Humanity is auditioning to be very short-lived. Humanity is in charge, but it’s evident that, much of the time, we don’t know what the heck we’re doing!

The Security and Sustainability Guide (SSG) is a way to orient yourself to this new era. There are thousands of organizations and tens of thousands of dedicated individuals doing wonderful work on all sorts of wicked problems. The SSG is a reference resource to hundreds of them, and new ones show up constantly. Overtime, the Guide will assist good people in who want to make powerful connections to improve the prospects of life on Earth surviving and thriving.
