On Saturday, February 16, 2013 from 1:30-4:30pm the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) will be holding a symposium to present Future Earth, a new 10-year international initiative on integrated global environmental change research.
Future Earth is mobilizing the global scientific community, funders, and users of research to define together and address the most pressing research questions on sustainable development and its integrated environmental, social, and economic dimensions. This includes strengthened links between science, policy, and society.
The discussion on February 16th will address international coordination of research and funding; co-designing research with funders, scientists, and users; and the role of science in bridging to policy and practice. For more information about the symposium please click here.
