Embedding sustainability in education

We are committed to ensuring our students develop their understanding of the consequences their actions can have on the planet and future generations. We offer a free extracurricular course students can take to get an in-depth understanding of issues affecting the sustainability of our planet.

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.
