Future Earth, first announced in Rio+20 in 2012, is a joint program proposed to incorporate existing international programs such as the IGBP, DIVERSITAS and IHDP, and to expand its activities to tackle global issues. The story behind the scene in establishing Future Earth was full of insights and the will of the world’s scientists towards global issues as well as for the future of global society, and is still valuable in this age of SDGs. Professor Yuan T. Lee, the president of ICSU at that time, will tell us the idea and philosophy of ICSU on Future Earth and about the prospect of the role of science for human wellbeing in the future.
