About Future Earth
Future Earth is a global research platform providing the knowledge and support to accelerate our transformations to a sustainable world. Future Earth was launched in June 2012 at the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20).
A new globally distributed Secretariat began operations in January 2015. The Secretariat was selected following an open competition by the Science and Technology Alliance for Global Sustainability, and has global hubs located in:
- Canada (Montreal)
- France (Paris)
- Japan (Tokyo)
- Sweden (Stockholm)
- the United States (Colorado)
which function together as a single entity.
These offices are complemented by a set of regional hubs which today cover the Middle East and North Africa, Latin America, Europe and Asia. These regional structures are also being developed to ensure broader geographical representation and global diversity in the running of Future Earth.
