On Sustainability Research Network is brought together by a common concern for sustainability from a holistic perspective, where environmental, cultural, economic, and social interests intersect. We seek to build an epistemic community where we can make linkages across disciplinary, geographic, and cultural boundaries. As a Research Network we are defined by our scope and concerns and motivated to build strategies for action framed by our shared themes and tensions.

  • Theme 1: Ecological Realities
  • Theme 2: Participatory Process
  • Theme 3: Economic, Social and Cultural Context
  • Theme 4: Education, Assessment and Policy
