Global Systems Institute

Securing our Future

The Global Systems Institute is applying Earth system science to generating networked solutions. Our aim is to work with others to secure a flourishing future for humanity as an integral part of a life-sustaining Earth system. We are uniting a trans-disciplinary group of researchers, educators and partners to look beyond single ‘environmental’ issues to a truly systemic view of coupled global changes in the human social and economic sphere and the biosphere.

As a new Institute we are in the early steps of our journey. We are identifying and developing pioneer projects or nodes of activity to create networks of transformative change.

Find out here how you can submit a photo for consideration.
