The “good Anthropocene” is already here, if you look closely.  Local examples 
abound of how nature and humanity can prosper together over the coming decades 
and centuries.  They just need to be examined, refined, distributed, and 
connected up to a working whole.

Ecosystem ecologist Elena Bennett believes that discovering the most effective 
paths to such a future is a bottom-up process, as countless projects all over 
the world are exploring the ways that nature and humans can best collaborate.  
She has collected 500 such examples and assembled them into a narrative 
pointing toward an Anthropocene Epoch in which all life thrives.

"Seeds of a Good Anthropocene," Elena Bennett, SFJAZZ Center, Hayes Valley, San 
Francisco, 7pm, Monday, November 20.  The show starts promptly at 7:30pm.
