Our Mission

Mathematics for Planet Earth is an initiative that seeks to promote mathematical research that benefits our planet and our society.

Our mission is to foster outstanding applied research in mathematics and cognate fields, to communicate the foundational importance of mathematics for scientific and technological progress to the broader public, and to inspire the next generation of researchers, educators, and leaders to make a positive impact on our world.

About us:

We are a group of researchers and educators working in applied mathematics, Earth science, and cognate fields. We seek to promote outstanding applied research by mathematicians, statisticians, and data scientists who use mathematics for the benefit of humanity. We achieve this through media engagement, interdisciplinary seminars, industry linkage workshops, outreach events, and more.
