Sustainability Science 2.0 - Denver, CO


Denver, CO, May 24th, 2019

The US Global Hub of Future Earth is collaborating with the science and technology for sustainability program at the National Academies of Sciences to host a series of dialogues with US sustainability research and innovation leaders from different sectors, to assess the status and future of sustainability science in the US. The focus of these cross-sector dialogues will be on societal needs and research ecosystem capacities for response, the frameworks through which we are and should be supporting sustainability science, and our methods for linking research, innovation, and technology communities.
