Key Directions

Australian ecosystem science solves global and national challenges risking our environments. A need has never been greater for ecosystem science to deliver the evidence, knowledge and tools to respond to the current issues and future trials facing the protection and sustainable use of Australia’s ecosystems.

The Foundations for the Future plan for long term ecosystem science outlines six key directions for the future, that connect with the three key themes of the Ecosystem Science Council’s vision:

  • excellent science
  • public engagement, and
  • healthy ecosystems.

These six directions form an integrated, complementary group and are progressed and revised in response to the ecosystem science community’s influence.
