Future Earth Initiative

Future Earth launched in 2015 and is a major 10-year international initiative to advance global sustainability science. Future Earth is a global community of tens of thousands of world-class researchers, projects and institutes brought together around an international research agenda focusing on sustainability science.

The Academy of Science is developing a project office for Future Earth in Australia. Future Earth’s 2025 vision addresses eight key challenges to global sustainability:

  1. Deliver water, energy, and food for all
  2. Decarbonise socio-economic systems to stabilise the climate
  3. Safeguard the terrestrial, freshwater and marine natural assets underpinning human well-being
  4. Build healthy, resilient and productive cities
  5. Promote sustainable rural futures
  6. Improve human health
  7. Encourage sustainable consumption and production patterns
  8. Increase social resilience to future threats.

Get Involved

There are a variety of ways you can get your students, class, year level, school and community involved in National Science Week.

Your participation can be as simple as a display in the school library, or as complex as a whole-school science fair. A National Science Week event should:

  • be fun for the participants
  • be focused on quality science outcomes
  • be supportive of your science curriculum
  • encourage the participants to want to try more science
  • raise the general profile of science within the community.

A poster and other information about Science Week is posted to every preschool, primary school, high school and TAFE in Australia each year, usually around the start of Term 2.
