Experts argue that we are living in the age of the Anthropocene – the epoch when humanity has irrevocably altered the planet. Predictions of climate change impacts are dire – mass extinction of species, acidic oceans and extreme weather events. But can we turn our influence around and steer our global impact in a new direction towards a more sustainable future?

As momentum builds towards an international climate change agreement at the UN COP 21 conference in Paris, New Zealand and French experts discuss humanity’s capacity to adapt, become resilient and address the greatest challenge posed to human existence.
