Urban Anthropocene Workshop

Please note that our "Urban Anthropocene" workshop, originally scheduled for autumn 2020, had to be postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We hope to welcome you in person as soon as this is possible again or to organise the workshop as a hybrid event instead. Many thanks to everyone who has expressed their interest in participating so far, we will keep you posted and look forward to meeting you all eventually.
