VILCHES, Amparo  y  GIL PEREZ, Daniel. The Anthropocene. Risks and opportunities for the new generations. Educ. quím [online]. 2021, vol.32, n.spe, pp.55-72.  Epub 28-Feb-2022. ISSN 0187-893X.

Our purpose with this paper is to expound the strategy we have been using during more than two decades in order to involve citizens -and, very particularly, students and educators in training-in a sound understanding of the current situation of planetary emergency, characterized by a set of serious socio-environmental problems of anthropic origin, which have led to name the present stage of the evolution of the planet as Anthropocene. We will analyse the causes and consequences of these closely linked and mutually reinforcing problems which cause dangerous transgressions of several planetary boundaries. And we will focus on the feasible measures to face them, in order to move towards sustainable societies, respectful of the ensemble of Universal Human Rights, including the fundamental right to a healthy environment.

Palabras llave : Anthropocene; Planetary limits; Sustainable Development Goals (SDG); Sustainability transition.
