Talking about Transitions: Dialogue #5 – Digitalisation and the Anthropocene

In this iteration of Talking about Transitions, we examined the role that digital and other emerging technologies, like AI, play in shaping the Anthropocene and our responses to it. What is the digital Anthropocene, why has it become significant, and what are the key trends? We also addressed the question of how digitalisation is shaping climate action, and what are the steps that need to be taken to ensure the responsible utilisation of these technologies. 

Talking about Transitions: Dialogue #4 – Power and Politics – Imaginaries of Urban Resilience

This Dialogue examines and questions the predominant narratives and visions of resilience in Indian cities. It aims to question whose imaginaries are shaping the future and how novel forms of engagement can provide communities and individuals with an opportunity to co-create and plan their futures. We focus on addressing real trade-offs, where resilience infrastructure has led to displacement and further marginalisation of vulnerable communities, to discover pathways for more inclusive and equitable planning for climate risks.
