Japan Geoscience Union and American Geophysical Union Joint Meeting 2017

Three sessions will be convened around 1) a wide range of topics including water-energy-food nexus, climate, land use, Sustainable Development Goals and co-design of research agenda; 2) intersection of geoscience and health science; and 3) healthy ocean and a sustainable use of its resources and services. These sessions will highlight design and production of integrated knowledge across disciplines and innovative transdisciplinary research approaches – what Future Earth fosters at its heart. While experts of a wide range of domains will congregate to present their research activities, the sessions will offer opportunities to exchange ideas and enhance further collaboration beyond arenas.

  1. Future Earth – Implementing Integrated Research for Sustainable Future on 20 May 9:00-10:30, 10:45-12:15 (M-IS03)
  2. Innovative research at the intersection of geoscience and health science on 21 May (U-05)
  3. Research for a healthy ocean and a sustainable use of its resources and services on 23 May (A-OS20)

Furthermore, Future Earth will contribute to a session organised by our partner, the Northern Eurasia Future Initiative (NEFI):
