Unfolding a journey of collaborative inquiry

The Anthropocene Transition Project (ATP) is an emergent process. Its shape
and directions are fashioned by the interests and creative intelligence of
its participants who, through generative conversations, co-create new and
ever broadening streams of action/inquiry.

There is no project "plan". We are creating the path by walking together.

In February this year we convened a one-day workshop to explore directions
for the project. The themes that emerged that day have guided its
development this year. And each new initiative has in turn opened up new
fields for exploration.

This flowchart summarises where we have been and where we are heading.
Scroll down for thumbnail descriptions of each project.

The Anthropocene Paradox: The slides from Professor Will Steffen's keynote
address at the May 24 symposium are available on request.

Defiant Earth: An audio recording of Professor Clive Hamilton's keynote
address at the June 27 symposium will soon be available online.

Earth System Change & Cultural Evolution: A report of this June 27 workshop
will be available soon.

P2P & Commoning

A Transformative Social Paradigm

A roundtable with Dr Jose Ramos, P2P Foundation Tuesday 18th July,

UTS Business School, 14-28 Ultimo Rd, Ultimo

"In facing up to the many profound crises of our time, we face a conundrum
that has no easy resolution: how are we to imagine and build a radically
different system while living within the constraints of an incumbent system
that aggressively resists transformational change? Our challenge is not
just articulating attractive alternatives, but identifying credible
strategies for actualising them."

Mapping Cultural Narratives for the Anthropocene

First workshop in a series

Tuesday 25th July, 6.00-8.30pm

UTS Business School, 14-28 Ultimo Rd, Ultimo

The stories at the heart of our cultures are the foundations upon which we
make sense of the world and our lives. The dawn of the Anthropocene reveals
the dysfunctional nature of the dominant cultural stories of our age.

In this workshop we will map the stories that frame our lives and take a
look at some of the new stories emerging from the grassroots and the
periphery. The workshop may be the first in an ongoing inquiry into
cultural narratives in the Anthropocene Transition.

Participant numbers will be limited but if you miss our this time you can
put your name on a priority list for the next workshop.

Complexity Matters

The ATP is now convening regular forums/workshops to explore how complexity
thinking can enable transition and to share research and experience in the
application of complexity theory in diverse settings.
These gatherings of scholars and practitioners are held at 4-6 week

One focal question is how might an understanding of complex systems be more
effectively fostered in education at all levels and in areas of
professional and social practice?

Living in the Anthropocene:

A monthly dialogue circle

Our Living in the Anthropocene dialogue circle convenes on a Saturday
afternoon every month.

The group utilises a form of open but structured communication created by
British physicist David Bohm in partnership with spiritual teacher
Krishnamurti that aims to connect people to what is deeply real in their
lives. There is no agenda for dialogue circles—no topic is set in advance.
The content of the discussion is whatever arises spontaneously from the
