Cross community workshop on Extreme Events and Environments from Climate to Society (E3S)
The goal of this cross-community/co-design workshop is to identify and elaborate the scientific questions and associated research agendas which are scientifically challenging and of high societal relevance, in line with the goals of Future Earth.
To this end we called for proposals for targeted co-design workshop sessions (call for proposals can be found here), which are organized independently of each other and happen in parallel. The workshop sessions have been selected by the E3S steering committee.
The commitment of each session is to generate a 1-2 page document that will form the foundation of a research strategy and help to prepare call for proposals by funding organizations on Future Earth related research. Hence the workshop sessions are charged with strategic leadership. Workshop sessions were held in small groups of renowned experts and stakeholders, with the active participation of early career researchers, who were independently nominated and are selected by the E3S steering committee (more about E3S Early Career Grants can be found here).
