Christian Schwägerl attended the first ever UN climate summit in Berlin in 1995. Since then he has travelled the world’s forests, reefs, glaciers and laboratories to report both a deep concern for the state of our planet and an essentially optimistic view of our future.
Schwägerl has reported on science, environment and politics for Der Spiegel and Frankfurter Allegmaine Zeitung and currently writes for GEO, Die Zeit and Cicero magazine.
His books include 11 Looming Wars: Future Conflicts About Technologies, Resources, Territories and Food (with Andreas Rinke, 2012), The Analog Revolution: When Technology Becomes Alive and Nature Fuses with the Internet (2014) and The Anthropocene: The Human Era and How it Shapes Our Planet (2015).
He is one of the creators and project leaders of The Anthropocene Project, a three-year collaboration in Berlin at Haus der Kulturen der Welt cultural centre as well as an external curator for the ongoing special exhibition on the Anthropocene at Deutsche Museum.
