IHOPE — Integrated History and Future of People on Earth
The Integrated History and Future of People on Earth (IHOPE) is a global network of researchers and research projects using integrative frameworks to combine study human and Earth system history on behalf of our species’ future. IHOPE’s long-term, human-scale perspective unites Earth system science with the social sciences, the humanities, and communities of practice.
IHOPE asserts that humans are a part of the Earth system and are now agents in planetary change. To offer viable paths for humanity’s future, our models, scenarios, and other visions must incorporate the full range of human experience and creativity by drawing on experiments in the laboratory of the past.
IHOPE is a core project of IHDP (International Human Dimensions Programme).
