IPHAKADE IS
EARTH STEWARDSHIP SCIENCE   Earth Stewardship is the ethical management by all of our Global Commons                     

In Earth Stewardship Science, Science is used in the broadest sense of the word, covering all fields of scientific enquiry:
a systematic enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions across the natural, social, health and engineering sciences; a body of knowledge of the type that can be rationally explained and reliably applied

Earth Stewardship Science is a new, broad intellectual field in tune with contemporary global perspectives of the world and its co-evolving complexities; it provides a broader focus of study than that of ‘Climate Change’, ‘Sustainability Science’ or ‘Development Studies’, ‘Earth Systems Science’, ‘Ecosystem and Socio-Economic Services’. Its consilience approach seeks a deeper understanding of people and planet issues of both local and global significance.

In the context of AEON-ESSRI, Iphakade – Observe the present and consider the past to ponder the future – provides an African focus on this mother continent and its co-evolving complexities that demand collaborative enquiry.


We cannot understand the complexity of systems, let alone solve them, in isolation. Uptake will depend on a mix of unbalanced growth amongst science, economics, regulation, policy, behaviour, and so forth at a variety of scales, and with plenty of bottlenecks and tipping points along the way.  Read more about IPHAKADE
