Invitation to a North American consultation for Future Earth, May 2, 2013


After many years of work to improve our understanding of the Earth system
and human impacts on it, international cooperation on global change is
entering a dynamic new phase. All regions of the world are moving to
collaborate on initiatives that will advance understanding of the Earth
system in the context of societal needs and a sustainable global future. The
global change research programs (IGBP, IHDP, and
DIVERSITAS[1]) under the aegis of the International Council for Science
(ICSU) will be merging under the Future Earth Initiative. The evolution of
this new phase should be of interest to North American global change
researchers, and several global change-related entities in the U.S. and
Canada[2] would like to offer an opportunity for North American scientists
to be better informed about this evolution.

You are invited to participate in the first of a series of webinars designed
specifically for North American scientists to become familiar with Future
Earth and its potential implications for Earth System Science research. The
consultation is being undertaken on behalf of ICSU, and its partners in the
Science and Technology Alliance for Global Sustainability[3] This one-hour
event on May 2 will provide information on planning to date and allow input
in the North American context. The second webinar in the series will take
place on May 30.

The objectives of the webinar are to:

*         Introduce the Future Earth programme to partners and stakeholders

*         Discuss the implications for the transition to Future Earth on the

current and future global change research community in North America

Jack Kaye (NASA) will chair the webinar. Speakers include:

*         James Syvitski, University of Colorado

*         Diana Liverman, University of Arizona

*         Peter Liss, University of East Anglia

The consultation will pave the way for the transition to North American
participation in Future Earth and is intended to provide inputs to the
governing bodies of Future Earth (including the Science Committee, Interim
Secretariat, and Interim Director) as they begin to implement the
Initiative.

Please share this invitation with those whom you feel would benefit from
participating in this consultation. If you or others are unable to
participate but wish to provide your input, please visit: 
http://sites.nationalacademies.org/PGA/biso/futureearth/index.htm. The
webinars will be recorded and archived and linked with the site above.

Details of the webinar follow:

*         Date: Thursday 2 May 2013

*         Time: 13:00 hours Eastern Daylight Time

*         Registration is required. Please register here:

The attached note will furnish you with background information on the
initiative, on its goals and evolution, and on the organizations in North
America that are spearheading participation on this continent.
