★Invited papers

Keywords:Future Earth, Earth, Sustainability, globa environmental issues, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research

Future Earth program has been initiated not only as an integration and interdisciplinary research of global environmental changes, but also a transdisciplinary research between scientific community and other relevant stakeholders in society. Its research style is, therefore, co-design, co-production and co-delivery of research. This implies that Future Earth is a new scientific movement towards science in society, rather than science for science which has been a fundamental characteristic of the modern science scince the 18th or 19th century. How to implement this new science is a great challenge for both scientists and many stakeholders in society. This paper will focus on this issue, including some proposals for Future Earth implimentation.
