Global Futures Laboratory

Human activity has placed significant pressure on our planet’s resource, yet we have yet to harness our intellectual capacity to ensure a habitable future. Arizona State University, long a global leader in sustainability efforts, has created the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Futures Laboratory to harness that capacity locally and globally. The laboratory is a new world headquarters for an international network of scientists, scholars and innovators working to solve existing and emerging challenges of planetary health.

When you give to the work of the lab, you make a meaningful contribution to ensuring a habitable planet and a future in which well-being is attainable.

Unprecedented in its scope, the laboratory unites the expertise within research institutes, centers, facilities across the university and partner entities around the world to pursue actionable solutions to our most challenging issues. When you give, you have many options to align your giving passion with the work of the lab.
