A sustainable future remains within our reach. The need for change is agreed: we no longer ask ‘is action needed?’ Instead, the key questions are ‘what action is needed?’, ‘where is it needed?’, and ‘who needs to act?’ Answering these questions requires collaboration across and beyond academia, through local to global partnerships with civil society, private sector, and governments. It also means embracing diverse understandings of what sustainability is, how it is experienced, envisioned and achieved. The Centre facilitates sustainability research which is collaborative and trans-disciplinary.  

Never has this work been more important: providing the necessary leadership to bring about a more sustainable future is one of the key missions for universities today. Our three research clusters and four cross-cutting methodological themes enable the cross-fertilisation of ideas, skills, and projects.
