Contact & FAQ


What's "Anthropocene"?

From the Greek 'anthropos' meaning 'human' and 'cene' meaning 'new' or 'recent'. 'The Anthropocene' is an unofficial name for the current geological epoch which is characterised by human impact on the environment. The pronounciation varies, though we are partial to the Oxford Learner's Dictionary's pronounciation.
