Future Earth Engagement Principles and Practice

Central to Future Earth’s vision is a commitment to co-design and co-produce knowledge in collaboration with societal partners to develop solutions-oriented research that responds to the sustainability challenges facing society. It is this ambition, and the work that we do at all levels in order to fully involve societal partners, and to bridge the gap between them and research communities, that we call Engagement.
