Conference on Pan-Pacific Anthropocene (ConPPA) 2019

31 January 2019: Submission Deadline!


The anthropocene is a developing anthropogenic epoch. Human intelligence and acitivities have become an unprecedented new geological force in the 4.5 billion-year history of the Earth, changing our atmosphere, hydropshere, biosphere and even geosphere. The current most important issues such as global warming, sea level rise, ocean acidification, waste disposal and plastic crisis, have profoundly affected the global climate and ecosystem. The Pan-Pacific realm, with richness of civilizations, has been experiencing severe environmental pollution and ecological crisis, associated with swift economic development over the past decades. The APPA, a nonprofit and non-governmental organization, divulges and emphasizes the anthropogenic impact on the Pan-Pacific region in particular and on the Earth in general.

The Association of Pan-Pacific Anthropocene (APPA) proposes future possible trends and related countermeasures for the international community through multidisciplinary academic studies, such as climate observation and simulation, proxy and historic records, anthropogenic geohazards, topography and geomorphology, biodiversity, environmental pollution, and archeology and civilization.

APPA's mission is:

  • To promote academic researches of relative fields in the Pan-Pacific Anthropocene.
  • To hold workshops, academic speeches and conferences.
  • To reveal the updated regional and global changes in climate, environment, propose possible future trend and suggestion to the international society
  • Conduct other activities that are consistent with the aims of Association
