Our newly established Essex Sustainability Institute (ESI) is the hub of all
sustainability-focussed teaching, research and consultancy at Essex.
The ESI builds on a rich tradition of cross-cutting academic work, acting as a
platform that brings students, and social and natural scientists together. Our aim is to
facilitate research and knowledge transfer on global environmental challenges, building
strong links with private and public organisations, as well as the local community.
- High-quality interdisciplinary postgraduate courses
- First-class interdisciplinary research
- Wide cooperation with Essex departments and their partners
- Close relationships with local and regional communities, NGOs, businesses and policymakers.
