The concept of the Anthropocene spurs creativity for what a new geological epoch, defined by human activities, means for society. My research re-evaluates humans' relationship with nature and the ways in which political processes will evolve in response. As politics begin to integrate the “Anthropocene” into decision-making, what implications will this have for the role of science in politics, international institutions, and human association to nature? I am exploring international connections between national parks (of similar climate and range of biodiversity), as a case of environmental management and communication occurring beyond national boundaries.
