Welcome to the Anthropocene is the world’s first educational web portal on the Anthropocene. It aims to inspire, educate and engage people about the interactions between humans and the planet.

The web portal was first developed in 2012 by Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO), Globaïa, International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme (IGBP), International Human Dimensions Programme on Global Environmental Change (IHDB), Stockholm Resilience Centre and Stockholm Environment Institute.

The second phase of the portal’s development has been a collaboration between Albaeco, Globaïa and Stockholm Resilience Centre, sponsored by the Swedish Postcode Foundation.
