Initiatives

Learn about our primary initiatives below, as well as our ongoing program that fosters connections and growth in early-career researchers and practitioners.

Sustainable Australian Cities and Communities

Australian cities and communities are facing a massive period of transformation and opportunity. The trajectory of these cities and communities will have a huge impact on the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Climate Risk and Equity
Future Earth Australia adopted a new focus area —Climate Risk and Equity— in November 2018 with a two-day event held in conjunction with Climate-KIC Australia and the Sydney Environment Institute at the University of Sydney.
Early-Career Researcher and Practitioner Program
We know that early-career researchers and practitioners are the future of sustainability. We host a number of events each year under key themes to bring together ECRPs from our member organisations.
Thriving Earth Exchange
Communities know their sustainability priorities best. Tapping into our extensive network of partners with diverse expertise across sustainability issues, Future Earth Australia has partnered with AGU’s Thriving Earth Exchange to facilitate communities and scientists to work on community science priorities together to create actionable science.
