Environment, Ecosystem and Decarbonisation
The Earth is facing a multitude of environmental crises from rising temperatures and increased extreme storm events, to species and ecosystem loss and plastics in our oceans. The need to act is imperative, with everyone from individuals to governments, businesses and civil-society groups taking responsibility to explore every avenue available to change our cultures and behaviours. 
Research by the University of Plymouth and its partners is tackling fundamental challenges that will enable humanity to achieve greater socio-ecological resilience and environmental restoration, using a whole system approach. Underpinned by evidenced-based transdisciplinary research integrated with planning, delivery and evaluation, our researchers are addressing local environmental priorities and working to achieve national and international sustainability goals.
