Vision and Mission


We aim to be bigger than the sum of our parts, working effectively across disciplinary, national and societal boundaries, to address the world’s most important environmental issues.


We investigate today’s key environmental challenges, working with academic colleagues, policy makers, charities, business and communities across the globe to find holistic solutions based on good science. We equip our students to think independently, to collaborate with others and to understand their discipline and the role it plays in the wider world, thus enabling them to help solve their own, and society’s, challen‌ges.‌
