Since its founding in 1990, the Global Council for Science and the Environment (GCSE) has promoted the use of science to inform government decision-making about complex environmental challenges. Formerly the National Council for Science and the Environment (NCSE), GCSE works collectively and engages scientists, educators, policymakers, business leaders, and officials at all levels of government.
