About the Centre for Environment and Sustainability
Human activity has complex and far-reaching effects on our fragile environment, creating a need for integrative approaches that support effective stewardship. In the 21st century, identifying environmental problems and developing and implementing sensible and practical solutions will increasingly depend upon innovation and collaboration between industry, government, academics and communities. The mission of the Centre for Environment and Sustainability (CES) is to foster interdisciplinary teaching and learning that advances the understanding of complex environmental and societal interactions. Through this mission, the CES aims to develop the next generation of environment and sustainability leaders. The CES is an interdisciplinary initiative supported by the Faculty of Science (host faculty), Faculty of Engineering and Faculty of Social Science, and other contributing faculties. It is home to the Undergraduate Environmental Science program, the Masters in Environment and Sustainability program, and the Collaborative Environment and Sustainability program.
