Global Futures Laboratory™

Since 2004, Arizona State University has become a global leader in sustainability efforts—creating the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability, launching the first School of Sustainability in the U.S., deploying the largest solar energy portfolio of any university in the U.S. and more.

The emergence of the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Futures Laboratory™ at ASU is the next step in our continual evolution. It represents the urgent belief that we can and must make a meaningful contribution to ensuring a habitable planet and a future in which well-being is attainable.

The laboratory provides key engagement spaces for scientists, educators and leaders across ASU and around the world to address critical issues related to the future of planet Earth. Rather than solving problems after they arise, we seek to design a future in which humanity not only survives, but thrives.
