Centre for Environment and Sustainability

We were first established in 1992 by Professor Roland Clift, and are now an internationally acclaimed centre of excellence on sustainable development.

Study with us

We offer excellence in innovative PhD and EngD programmes which are embedded within multidisciplinary research, as well as numerous MSc courses and continued professional development courses.

Every year we run our Roland Clift lecture series presented by a different speaker, our most recent lecture was held by Joanna Yarrow from the IKEA Group. We are also proud to say that we hold the Athena Swan bronze Award for our progress and commitment to equality and diversity.

Prosperity matters

The Centre for the Understanding of Sustainable Prosperity (CUSP) is an ESRC funded multi-institutional research centre, directed by Professor Tim Jackson. Their vision is to help humans live a better, healthier more prosperous life by looking at the economic, social, political and philosophical areas that will get us there.
