We are a team of infrastructure experts committed to transforming how we approach the provision of basic and critical services into a future defined by accelerating and increasingly uncertain forces. The team is interdisciplinary and embraces the full complexity of infrastructure. We convene as an informal society to identify and discuss emerging infrastructure challenges. We view the society as one that can be called upon to address infrastructure challenges beyond the standard fare of approaches endemic to systems.
Infrastructure and the Anthropocene
We view infrastructure as increasingly affected by several accelerating and uncertain forces. To ensure that infrastructure services are met into the future, the approaches and design of infrastructure must be responsive to these forces. Yet little training or formal education exists in how to ensure the viability of infrastructure as they are increasingly effected by these forces. We intend for our society to be at the forefront of preparing infrastructure for these challenges.
Infrastructure and the Anthropocene Conference
Our network of experts frequently convenes to identify challenges and exchange ideas towards the management of infrastructure in the Anthropocene. The specifics of these conferences are provided on the Conference page.
