Off the back of the declaration and recognizing the interconnectedness of the current challenges, the four major international research programmes under ICSU that direct global environmental change science (the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme; DIVERSITAS; the International Human Dimensions Programme; and the World Climate Research Programme) aim to rapidly reorganize to focus on global sustainability solutions.

Additionally, the programmes are proposing to develop platforms that facilitate cooperation with all sectors of society to develop a new strategy for creating and rapidly translating knowledge into action. "Such interactions should be designed to bring societal relevance and trust to science-policy interfaces, and more effectively inform decision-making to keep pace with rapid global change," reads the declaration. This strategy will form part of "a new contract between science and society" and includes the launch of a new international research programme, Future Earth.

The Planet Under Pressure conference marked the beginning of this new shift in direction, according to the conference co-chairs.

Delegates in London were joined by almost 8,000 people online worldwide and reached more than a million people through social media in the first three conference days.

Dr Brito said, "We have a positive message: strong leadership from all sectors and harnessing the increased connectivity offers some hope that the risk of long-term environmental crises can be minimized."

"This new connectivity is the beginning of how the scientific community needs to operate. We need a powerful network of innovation, North and South. This approach needs to be part of our DNA from now on," she added.

In recorded remarks, UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon said today that "climate change, the financial crisis and food, water and energy insecurity threaten human wellbeing and civilization as
