AGU Town Hall
Future Earth Town Hall at the 2012 AGU Fall meeting
As Future Earth is at an early stage of development, the Transition Team overseeing its initial design is seeking inputs from the broader global environmental change research community, both globally and regionally, to help shape the programme. Within this consultative phase, Future Earth was also discussed with the AGU community through an interactive Town Hall event at the AGU Fall meeting (San Francisco, 3-7 December 2012). Panelists discussed the research framework of the programme with researchers from natural and social sciences and other interested stakeholders (funders, private sector, civil society, policy makers).
