Humans are the dominant force shaping the Earth’s geology in the Anthropocene Era. Our lifestyle and energy use contribute to the depletion of our planet’s resources, pollution, and collapse of its ecosystems. With ingenuity and awareness, we can guide the planet to a survivable path.
We plan for humanity’s success in the Anthropocene. We believe in prosperity rather than austerity. We enable leadership to solve climate and energy with an engineering safety margin with fixed goals, fixed timelines, and fixed budgets.
The Anthropocene Institute’s mission is to drive thought leadership and investment. We seek to accelerate the technological and community innovations necessary to address the needs of our planet.
There are significant financial and political barriers to commercialization and broad adoption.
Our approach is drive innovation through strong partnerships. We work with governments, research institutions, forward-thinking investors, and citizens.
History has repeatedly shown that innovation and community always disrupt the barriers to complex problems.
We are guided by our commitment to support those solutions that facilitate diversity, dignity, and prosperity for all.
We believe that rallying resources to support the development of cheap clean energy and enabling ocean sustainability can address global pollution and famine.
We and our partners are motivated by not only the promise of meaningful returns but how each step brings the world closer to sustainable energy, food production, clean air and water for all.
