Earth system boundaries for a just world on a safe planet

Watch the Earth system boundaries for a just world on a safe planet on We Don't Have Time

future earth
Earth commission

Future Earth and the Earth Commission - a part of the Global Commons Alliance - invite you to join ‘Earth systems boundaries for a just world on a safe planet’, live on We Don't Have Time on June 9.

The Earth Commission has defined a new set of boundaries that will inform science-based-targets for governments, cities and businesses to work toward, in order to secure a safe and just future in which humans and nature can thrive. By centering justice at its heart, this new science represents a quantum leap in our ability to understand Earth’s capacity to sustain life, and the role we humans play as guardians of our only home and each other.

Join us, live on We Don't Have Time as we engage with this new scientific framework.
