A Mindset for the Anthropocene (AMA) is an interdisciplinary research project at the IASS. The project explores the connections between Sustainability and Inner Change research. Together we created a platform to collect and visualise data to highlight the overlaps and interconnections between the communities. The visualisations act as exploratory navigational interfaces, allowing visitors to connect the dots themselves.
