Minik Rosing is a Professor of Geology at the University of Copenhagen. His research focuses on the impact of life on the geological evolution of Earth. When and how did life emerge on Earth? When did photosynthesis evolve? Can we stimulate life to mitigate global changes in the chemistry of the atmosphere and oceans and limit the resulting changes in climate?
These are the (very) big questions which Minik and his team are exploring. In his keynote dialogue with Francis Kéré, Minik will explain how millions of years of evolution have shaped our thinking about Earth’s resources and the way we consume them, and how we collectively can move toward a more sustainable resource paradigm.
