future earth ec call 19PAGES' parent organization Future Earth has launched a call for nominations for the Earth Commission and encourages you to nominate leading scientists to take part in this important mission to achieve global sustainability.

The deadline for nominations is 23 April 2019.
 
Human activities are pushing the planet out of a safe operating space for humanity. Urgent action is needed to slow, and even stop, this change.

To tackle the challenge, Future Earth is convening the Earth Commission – a group of leading scientists who will define the conditions needed to maintain a stable planet, and synthesize science needed to set targets for the life support systems of Earth: land, biodiversity, freshwater, ocean.

The Commission will inform the work of a new Science Based Targets Network developing methodologies for companies and cities to set specific science-based targets.
