The exciting new 10-year global change research initiative known as Future Earth has published its initial design report. The report, drafted by the Transition Team, outlines a research strategy focusing on three themes; Dynamic Planet, Global Development and Transformations to Sustainability. Future Earth aims to serve as an international platform to provide knowledge for sustainability.
“Transformations towards sustainability: Understanding transformation processes and options, assessing how these relate to human values and behaviour, emerging technologies and social and economic development pathways, and evaluating strategies for governing and managing the global environment across sectors and scales.”
