Future Earth Norway is part of a global change research initiative that provides knowledge to support and accelerate transformations to a sustainable world.

Future Earth Norway is a platform for global environmental change and sustainability research in Norway, organized under the auspices of Future Earth.

We showcase Norwegian sustainability and global change research and researchers and connect them to opportunities and people within Norway and the wider Future Earth community.

Global sustainability calls for new ways of doing science - more innovative, integrated and collaborative ways of doing research and generating knowledge. Greater cooperation is needed between the natural and social sciences and humanities, between different knowledge systems and societal actors to foster transformations towards a more sustainable and equitable world for people to thrive in.

Future Earth is the response, shaped as a 10-year global change research initiative that aims to produce high impact research and drive solutions. It is open to:

  • researchers of all disciplines, natural and social, as well as engineering, the humanities and law;
  • societal partners within policy, practice, business, media, education, civil society, arts and society at large.
