Location / Venue


The conference will be held in a hybrid format, allowing both in person and online participation. Online access will be available through the website


The physical venue is located at the Max Planck Institute of Geoanthropology, Kahlaische Straße 10, 07743 Jena. Jena is situated in the federal state Thuringia which is often called the “Green Heart” of Germany.

The number of in person attendees is limited and registration will be based on a first come first served principle until the maximum seat capacity is reached.

The conference will be held in a hybrid format.



The Max Planck Institute of Geoanthropology (MPI-GEA) uses model-based and interpretive approaches to examine the fundamental dynamics and dilemmas that have brought about the multiple crises of the “Anthropocene,” humanity’s proposed geological epoch, and explores their mutual conditions.

The institute pursues cross-disciplinary research projects, e.g. on planetary urbanization, the global food system, global material, energy and information flows, and human-ecosystem dynamics, and aims to provide a collaborative synthesis service in which data and expertise from various sub-disciplines such as climate research, biodiversity research and the social sciences are brought together, modeled and interpreted.



With about 109,000 residents Jena is a young, diverse city that boasts great views of the surrounding mountains and Saale River valley. Enjoy gluhwein, sweets, and crafts at the Christmas Market in the city centre beginning on November 24.
