The 3rd International Symposium on「Decision Science for Future Earth -Transdisciplinary Science in Practice-」


The third International Symposium on "Decision Science for Future Earth" will be held in Fukuoka, Japan on 24th and 28th of September 2018.
In the main symposium on Day 1 (September 24), we invite members of JST Future Earth project on TD-VULS project, and Research Institute for Humanity and Nature (RIHN). This exchange session facilitates mutual learning and knowledge sharing of transdisciplinary researches in IDS3, TD-VULS project, and RIHN. We believe that lessons from these individual research projects will provide answers to the following key questions: 1) how we can develop successful co-design and co-production with various stakeholders to solve various social problems of local communities? and 2) how we can contribute to national and global problem-solving based on many cases of local success?
On Day 2 (September 28), the sessions will be given by the three invited speakers: Dr. Leena Srivastava, a co-chair of Future Earth Advisory Committee, Dr. Amy Luers, Executive Director of Future Earth. and Dr. Eduardo Brondizio who is a previous member of Future Earth Science Committee. This session will be held as a preparatory meeting towards a WSSF2018 session "Key roles of social sciences in Future Earth, a global research initiative to support sustainable development goals (SDGs)". We introduce ideas of "Decision Science for Future Earth" and the achievements of IDS3 projects exchange opinions about how we can integrate the achievements developed in Japan with global success of the Future Earth.

Future Earth was established in 2013 as an international program by integrating four UN global environmental programs. Future Earth aims at not only promoting research on global environmental issues but also developing transdisciplinary science that contributes for solving various kinds of social problems such as poverty and education by transforming our society towards a sustainable future. In addition to scientists, collaboration with various stakeholders such as companies, governments and NPOs is considered to be a key to develop transdisciplinary science under Future Earth.
