Future Earth Switzerland

Future Earth is the global research platform providing the knowledge and support to accelerate our transformations to a sustainable world.

Launched in 2015, Future Earth is a 10-year initiative to advance Global Sustainability Science, build capacity in this rapidly expanding area of research and provide an international research agenda to guide natural and social scientists working around the world. But it is also a platform for international engagement to ensure that knowledge is generated in partnership with society and users of science.

Future Earth Switzerland strives to build a community of scientists working on sustainable development and connect it to related efforts on the international scale. It particularly supports the Future Earth Global Research Projects that are hosted by Swiss universities (BioDISCOVERY, GMBA, GLP, and PAGES).

We are closely engaged in international processes such as the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and climate and biodiversity agreements (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the Convention on Biological Diversity).
