UK Future Earth

‘Future Earth’ and the British Academy

November 2015

The UK’s national academies – the British Academy, the Royal Society, the Academy of Medical Sciences and the Royal Academy of Engineering – have collaborated to convene the UK national committee for Future Earth. UK Future Earth will bring together representatives from academia, government, research councils, business and societal partners to provide a UK platform for engaging with Future Earth’s global environmental change agenda.

Future Earth is a 10-year major international research platform for providing the knowledge and support to accelerate durable transformations to a sustainable world. Future Earth aims to develop a new type of science that links disciplines, knowledge systems and societal partners to support a more agile and innovative global response through the co-design and co-production of knowledge. The UK national academies, by coming together in this exciting collaboration, hope to support the delivery of this aim.
