Future of Planet Earth
Foundation For the Future and UNESCO Division of Ecological and Earth Sciences, 2009
(ISBN 978-0-9794081-5-1)

On 3–5 June 2008, 19 eminent scholars representing 5 continents met in Paris, France, at the UNESCO Headquarters to consider the critical factors that might have the most impact on the long-term future of Planet Earth. The seminar, called “Future of Planet Earth,” was jointly sponsored and conducted by Foundation For the Future and UNESCO’s Division of Ecological and Earth Sciences. The seminar was among the activities organized in the framework of the United Nations “International Year of Planet Earth,” which focused on the importance of Earth sciences for society and human well-being. The intention behind the seminar was to provide a forum for dialogue amongst academics, scientists, conservationists, resource managers, and others dedicated to the wellbeing of the planet to explore the human-environment relationship with significant implications for the future of Planet Earth.

The seminar proceedings are now available on the FFF website under Recent Publications. The 358-page book contains transcripts of the seminar presentations and all dialogic sessions that followed.
