08.02 - 09.02.2018  
Berlin, Germany

The 3rd German Future Earth Summit "From Knowledge to Action" will be held in Berlin, Germany, from 8-9 February 2018.


To successfully implement the 2030 Agenda and to reach the goals of the Paris Agreement scientific knowledge is essential to support and improve decision-making on possible development pathways of society. Considering the tight time scale the scientific community is challenged more than ever before to provide answers of the world’s biggest societal and environmental problems.

The German Future Earth and WCRP communities and others interested to discuss research in the context of the Knowledge Action Networks are invited to attend. The German Future Earth Summit provides a platform for the scientific community on a national level relevant to global sustainability research.

The 2018 Summit will focus on Future Earth Knowledge Action Networks (KANs). KANs are expected to create and provide an creative environment for science and stakeholders to advance integrated knowledge generation on topics such as Health, Natural Assets, Ocean, Sustainable Consumption & Production, Sustainable Development Goals, Transformations, Urban, Water-Energy-Food Nexus, Finance & Economics.
