Humans are changing our already fragile planet. Academics across our Environment theme are conducting world-leading research that is tackling the challenges of environmental change. They are developing strategic partnerships with organisations who use the research to exert change for good.
We want to develop ever-stronger partnerships that will translate our research into practical and sustainable solutions.

Universities are living things: they feel, think and do. They are centres of intelligence; they are concerned with ideas; they have outposts upon the frontiers of knowledge; they sometimes do beautiful and remarkable things; they dream and imagine.
