Towards a sustainable Earth 

The Sustainable Earth Institute is about promoting a new way of thinking about the future of our world.

We bring researchers together with businesses, community groups and individuals to develop cutting-edge research and innovative approaches that build resilience to global challenges. 

We link diverse research areas across the University including science, engineering, arts, humanities, health and business.

If you’re an academic looking for a connection to industry, an organisation looking for academic research support or an individual who is inspired to work towards a sustainable future then contact us at sei@plymouth.ac.uk to find out how we can help.

We need to celebrate and recognise our complex, dynamic, and unique world – after all, good planets are hard to find.

Interdisciplinary challenge themes

The SEI brings together researchers across the University to collaborate on key sustainability challenges. Four interdisciplinary challenge themes are currently in focus and provide opportunities for SEI activities, including our Small Collaborative Funding scheme.
