Future Earth is a global network of scientists, researchers, and innovators collaborating for a more sustainable planet.
The COVID-19 crisis is devastating communities and economies around the globe. Alarmingly, this pandemic is a symptom of a much larger global systemic crisis, in which the relationship between human activities and the natural environment is rapidly destabilizing. At Future Earth, we believe that sustainability research can and must support a systems-based approach to managing global public health risks. Our networks and partners are supporting this critical agenda.
Future Earth in Transition
Five years into its operations, Future Earth – the world’s largest community of sustainability scientists – is transforming its governance and management structures in pursuit of deeper efficiency, inclusivity, and impact. This shift, which will take place over the next year, will also result in a broader set of strong national programs connected to the global work of Future Earth, broadening its reach and opening new inroads for transformative sustainability science around the world.
