In her Lessons from our Planet, Anne recounts through her images the key themes of the Anthropocene: Water, Drought, Climate Refugees, War, Trash, Endangered Species and Cultures, as well as the infinite possibilities of a positive Anthropocene: Wonder, Hope, Protection, Action, Love. They also address certain educational themes that are becoming increasingly relevant for the school of the future: urban responsibility and the importance of choice, the connections and interconnections between events and between us and the Planet.
“Without the Ocean Earth would be just another lifeless planet. Let’s learn that!”

“Today we have the power to decide who lives or not on our Planet.”
(18 mn) | This lesson recounts why we have entered the sixth mass extinction. Anne uses the stories and the symbology of four of her most powerful installations on endangered species to show us what we are about to lose.
POLLUTION AND SOLUTIONS PT.1
“We have a choice and we need to decide now. Do we want our archaeology to be trash?”
(Part 1 – 13 mn) | Pollution and Solutions recounts the impact and extent of the damage caused by our human footprint to the planet and all species. But today we can transform such a big problem into an opportunity!
POLLUTION AND SOLUTIONS PT.2
“The next generations have the right to a clean future and we should all act upon that”
(Part 2 – 17 mn) | The second episode of Pollution and Solutions recounts how more and more citizens and institutions consider climate change and pollution as the worst inter-generational violation of human rights. But there are still several futures possible and it’s now that we are choosing the one the next generations will live.
THE FUTURE OF GLACIERS
“The survival of all of us wherever we live on this planet depends on our glaciers. Find out why!”
(20 mn) | The lesson shows us how much the world of glaciers has changed and how Anne’s art has evolved with it. Scientists say we are reaching a tipping point. We need a new individual and collective approach to save them, but we already have the solutions.
