Purpose of the session:
The first two days of our Symposium highlight scientific accomplishments: how the science of planets and life looks from what we know today.  

Day 3 of the Symposium looks toward the future.  Three sessions will have the themes:
2-1: How can we further tighten the linkage of approaches that makea unified Earth-Life science?
2-2: How can ELSI be a leader for the global origins community?
2-3: What's the role of a research institute in Outreach & Science Communication?  

We want to know what you think will be possible and important in science in your future, and what roles a research institution like ELSI can play to help realize those possibilities.  Your views of scientific possibilities, together, will contribute to ELSI's understanding of future opportunities in science.Your ideas for collaboration, support, and engagement across institutions and societies will inform our own plans now and in coming years.  

Below we suggest some questions relate to the three session themes.  They are meant to get you thinking, but we welcome your ideas on these or other questions that you think are important:
1. What are scientific approaches and ideas that can play a bigger role in Earth-Life science than they currently do?  Are there examples of exciting work demonstrating some of these ideas?  Are there areas that need study where nobody is currently working?  Are some of these particularly well-suited to ELSI? *
2. How can the research centers in the global Origins community best work together to advance the leading edge of science research and support researchers in other institutions?  How can they balance investment in "Big Science" projects that need large-scale or longer-term commitments, with "Little Science" that must encourage diversity, innovation, and agility?  Are there special opportunities for ELSI operating with education and agencies both world-wide and in Japan and the Asia-Pacific region?
3. What are the greatest opportunities a public research institution has to strengthen education, governance, and the wider society: in its country? in its region? world-wide?  What responsibilities does it have to these?  What forms of science communication at different levels increase people's ability to participate in discovery, and to choose social priorities for science?  Are there other ways science communication can improve people's lives and lead to more innovative and more important research within science itself?
Any other ideas or directions you find important.
Due date: we will try to consider thoughts that arise in the first two days of the Symposium, but we will have more time to respond to comments entered before the starting day 12 January 2022.
