    DescriptionThe Anthropocene as a geological era, the rewilding of landscapes, ‘mother’ Shell and the imagination as a weapon against climate denial 'lite'. In this packed broadcast on climate change, Mathijs ter Kuile and Nash Keller speak with Sjoerd Kluiving, Earth scientist at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam/ASI, and Ruben Jacobs, who is researching the sociological aspects of climate change. In addition to the nitrogen crisis and the return of the wolf, the "Green New Deal" and the donut economy also come along. And a listener offers the climate critics, who often declare vegetarians and airplanes crazy, through a poem of reply. In short: listen!

    DescriptionDezeen editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs spoke to an expert panel about how designers can shape the anthropocene era to prevent global catastrophe in our latest Good Design for a Bad World talk.

    As Fairs wrote on Dezeen, we are entering a new geological era in which human activity is a dominant influence on earth's geology and environment. The name scientists propose for this is the anthropocene.
    It's easy to believe we are heading towards catastrophe – yet it also means we have the power to redesign our planet. How can designers shape the anthropocene era? How can they help us avoid disaster? What could the anthropocene earth look like?
    Fairs asked these questions to artist Jalila Essaidi, designer Pirjo Haikola, geologist Sjoerd Kluiving and writer Rab Messina in the panel discussion at Dutch Design Week 2018 in Eindhoven.
    The talk was a special edition of Dezeen's Good Design for a Bad World series exploring how design can solve some of the biggest problems facing the world.
