We invite you to join us for a webinar exploring the implications of recent work in PNAS and Annual Review of Environment and Resources showing that 12,000 years of increasingly intensive land use has reshaped biodiversity, ecosystems, landscapes, and climate across most of Earth's land.

A panel of authors and experts will explore the ways that land use history matters now more than ever for sustaining nature and human well-being.


Erle Ellis: Overview: 12,000 years of land use transformed Earth's ecology
Kees Klein Goldewijk: Modeling global land use in prehistory
Delfin Ganapin, JR.: Prehistoric land use and ecological change
Jacquelyn Gill: Indigenous land use and conservation today


GLP SSC members Patrick Meyfroidt, Ruth DeFries, and Navin Ramankutty will open the discussion, followed by questions from the audience.


Space is limited for this event. All registrants will receive a link for the webinar recording.
