The German Future Earth Summit, organised by German Committee Future Earth serves as national platform to exchange and discuss possible key topics in Future Earth. In 2014 during the first national conference the German community introduced around 75 research topics. This laid the basis to initiate a process to jointly develop a German perspective of Future Earth research, as well as to create the possibility for open calls for working groups to further develop ideas and projects.

Discussions at the first summit (2014) focused on the three Future Earth core themes “Dynamic Planet”, “Global Development” and “Transformation towards Sustainability”; in January 2016 the second German Future Earth Summit was dedicated to cross-sectoral issues supporting Future Earth research. The cross-sectoral issues cover the following areas: integrative modeling, monitoring, Earth observation and data systems, metrics and evaluation, science-society interface and theory development in interdisciplinary research. The 3rd German Future Earth Summit will take place in February 2018.

The German Future Earth Summit reinforces the German academic community in their interdisciplinary activities and provides the possibility to discuss innovative key topics in an interdisciplinary environment. The summit offers a platform for scientists of different disciplines, from natural and social sciences to humanities and engineering sciences, and moreover brings together science and research organisations to discuss funding possibilities.
