Future Earth Australia launches website

Adopted from the Future Earth Australia website

The aims and objectives of Future Earth Australia are to:

  1. Coordinate and leverage research relevant to the eight focal challenges identified by Future Earth globally – water, energy, food for all; decarbonize socioeconomic systems; safeguard natural assets; build healthy resilient cities; sustainable rural futures; improved human health; sustainable consumption and production; social resilience to future threats – as well as other key challenges for Australia and the Oceania region.
  2. Link the expertise of networks of researchers with policy-makers, business leaders, industry, practitioners and community stakeholders and facilitate interdisciplinary activities and partnerships to collaboratively produce solutions-oriented research.
  3. Deliver research products and services including convening a periodic Future Earth Australia conference, and linking Australian and regional activities to Future Earth internationally.
  4. Contribute to knowledge and solutions that will support transformations to global sustainability.

Future Earth Australia will provide essential services as an international platform to Australian scientists for deep engagement with leaders in research, policy, business, industry, civil society and community to generate solutions and have an impact.

The Australian Academy of Science has appointed Dr Imran Ahmad as the Director of Future Earth Australia to lead the initiative.
