This PDW offers an opportunity to explore the future by learning from the past. Specifically, we will compare the experiences, tactics, reflections and lessons from those who started the Academy of Management's focus on the natural environment and sustainability to the challenges faced in the age of the Anthropocene – a new geological epoch when human activity acts as a physical force altering earth's ecology and natural cycles. This workshop asks, ‘how can the early scholarship and experiences gained in the formation of ONE inform emergent management research and practice for improving lives in the Anthropocene?' To address this question, the workshop will bring together thought-provoking voices of founding scholars of the Organizations and the Natural Environment (ONE) division with the voices of newer generations for reflecting on and re-connecting with the field's initial passionate agenda. For instance, earlier scholarship engaged with systems perspective, referred to production and consumption processes, brought in interdisciplinary ecological insights, and challenged human-centric assumptions. With the aim of enabling scholarship that could improve social and ecological well- being, this workshop will facilitate an encounter of the foundational ideas on which ONE was formed with recent developments and conceptualizations for research on the Anthropocene.
