Registration is now open for UF Law’s 25th annual Public Interest Environmental Conference (PIEC). This year’s theme delves into the good, the bad and the ugly of the Anthropocene, what some now refer to as a new geological epoch characterized by the imprint of humans in the geological record. Thursday night’s keynote address “Whose Afraid of the Anthropocene? The Case of Geoengineering” will be headlined by Andrew Light, distinguished research fellow at the World Research Institute. Light’s talk will be held at the UF Harn Museum of Art, which is featuring the exhibit “Art in the Age of the Anthropocene.” Friday night’s banquet will feature Maya van Rossum, Delaware Riverkeeper and author of “The Green Amendment: Securing Our Right to a Healthy Environment.”  Panels and plenary sessions will discuss the anthropocenic future of Florida’s forests, rivers, springs, estuaries, bays, oceans, islands and beaches. A detailed agenda will be forthcoming. Register here.  More information can be found on the PIEC website.
