The Secretariat performs the day-to-day management of Future Earth, ensuring coordination across themes, projects, regions and committees, and liaising with key stakeholders at regional, national and local levels.

The Secretariat comprises five global hubs which function as a single entity, located in Canada (Montreal), France (Paris), Japan (Tokyo), Sweden (Stockholm) and the United States (Colorado).

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.
