“Future Earth and Management Research in the Anthropocene” at ICN Business School

Paul SHRIVASTAVA, ICN Business School Affiliate Research Professor and Executive Director of Future Earth Global Research Platform, made a presentation about “Future Earth and Management Research in the Anthropocene” this Wednesday, January 25, 2017 at ICN Business School.

Science shows that in the ‘Anthropocene era’ human and social activities are the primary drivers of natural ecosystem cycles, such as hydrological, carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus, cycles among others. Human activities are pushing the planet to breaching boundaries that can jeopardize life on earth. Future Earth global environmental change program is a network of 50,000 scientists seeking to avert this human driven planetary decline.

During his presentation, Paul SHRIVASTAVA explored the implications of its work for management research and shared his experience with the professors of ICN Business School and the researchers of the CEREFIGE participating in the presentation.
