Activities at AEON are designed to explore, discover and meet new challenges across Africa. Projects are embedded in Earth Systems Science research by design. Integrated into this are socio-economic issues enabling AEON to develop Earth Stewardship Science and to form the basis for a “learner’s manual on how to drive a crowded planet Earth to arrive alive at the end of this century”; a manual that AEON’s members will help design and implement to promote sustainable living in Africa.

AEON has a large number of interactive and collaborative projects that cover a wide range of topics and areas of interest, embedded within a number of research, exploration and development programmes. You will find a description of these programmes below. Please click on them to find out more and to view the projects as well as related project-documentation within each programme.
