In the publications, the authors touch on many painful points of human civilization at the beginning of the XXI century. Forest fires, floods, oil spills, destruction of the ozone layer and much more as a consequence of increased human activity. The materials of the exhibition analyze the discussions around the concept of "anthropocene". Why does this term make us reconsider the usual way of thinking about nature? Is there a way to overcome the apathy and helplessness inevitably associated with talking about the environmental crisis? The publications consider situations related to environmental pollution, offer practical solutions to minimize the negative impact of human activity and preserve natural resources.
