We can build an understanding of the entry into the Anthropocene from the study of the « great acceleration » post 1950, hence focus on approaches that allow us to understand the systemic nature of this phenomenon. For that purpose, we need to seek a way of teaching that would no longer be disciplinary and that would not focus on climate change exclusively. It is therefore essential, through a pedagogy by project, to make pupils / students understand the ethical and political stakes of the Anthropocene issues and thus to allow the decentering of views and approaches.
