World Anthropocene Manifesto

Du 26 novembre 2020 au 15 janvier 2021

What does the world say to the planet ?
"Witness, protest, propose, give voice".
From criticism to proposal

Call for proposals
An open letter and a worldwide invitation
For a manifesto with human and non-human values

We have entered the anthropocene. We are anthropocene. We are the earthly community. We are living together the climate change, the ocean acidification, the sea level rise, the species extinction, the pandemics, the famines, the soil pollution, the fires spread, the migrations, the floods, the droughts, the generalized urbanization, the social inequalities... The list is infinite. We no longer control our effects. Everything around us is shifting. And whether we like it or not, we are newly exploring our own lives and environments.

From our close environments, our daily practices, our lives, what do we want to express ? What is offending our moral conscience and our sense of justice? What makes us angry or happy ? What are our ideas and intentions to change the situation ? Do we feel like Earthlings ?

Let us speak up, give our word and engage in dialogues. It's time to let people know what matters to us : music, bodies, individual, collective, waste, senses, desires, tales, plants, fjords, viruses, animals, stones, ghosts... We all have creative leads, ideas, objects, actions. Alone, they seem anecdotal, but together they articulate, feed and spread.

Why ?
To form the basis of a living commitment of all ages. To initiate a world conversation. To mobilize a network and feed collective imagination. To question the possible. To lay the foundations for a horizontal manifesto that brings together local words. To testify for future generations.

How ?
From now on, send a video of 3 minutes maximum in the form of a speech, a sensitive reading, a simple image, from your territory and beyond.
Instructions for use here
You can also send your video at : manifeste.anthropoceneAEA21@universite-lyon.fr

When ?
Publish and submit your videos before January 15, 2021 to participate in the first World Anthropocene Manifesto, online in January 29, 2021, where all videos will form a collective work in motion.

Participate in the open workshop !
