2:02 min

Planet Earth verses Humanity: This is the theme of the 3rd Nobel Laureate Symposium on Global Sustainability, currently being held in Stockholm.

The symposium brings together around 20 Nobel Laureates, a number of leading policy makers and some of the world's most renowned thinkers and experts on global sustainability.

Today's proceedings take the form of a mock trial, with humanity accused of radically altering the conditions for life on planet Earth and bringing about a new age, the 'Anthropecene' or Age of Man.
