General information and objectives

Future Earth is a global research platform designed to provide the knowledge needed to support transformations towards sustainability.

Future Earth seeks to build and connect knowledge to increase the impact of research in diverse contexts, to explore new development paths, and to find new ways to accelerate transitions to sustainable development.

Future Earth will answer fundamental questions such as:

  • How and why the global environment is changing?

  • What are likely future changes?

  • What are the risks and implications for human development and for the diversity of life on earth?


Future Earth will define opportunities to reduce risks and vulnerabilities, to enhance resilience and innovation, and show ways to implement transformations to prosperous and equitable futures.
