The Council for Frontiers of Knowledge (The CFK) is an international interdisciplinary world-class science and technology organization existing to lead the world in defining and developing global sustainable science and technology and raising the challenge for greater participation. The gigantic challenge of meeting human development globally, confronts scientists, technologists, policy makers, governments and communities from local to global levels. Many people believe that science and technology (S&T) must play a more cardinal role in sustainable development, yet not enough systematic knowledge systems exists to help create institutions that effectively harness science and technology for sustainability, globally. Efforts to mobilize science and technology for sustainability are more likely to be effective when they manage boundaries between knowledge and action in ways that simultaneously enhance the validity and legitimacy of the knowledge they produce.
