Our aim is to understand and improve the uneven relationships between society, economy, and the environment. As part of the way to achieve that aim, we work very closely with our communities.
Working with communities
We engage and partner with a range of people and organisations across our research, teaching and public activities.
We are always looking for ways to engage further and to partner with stakeholders for mutual knowledge exchange and social benefit. Find out more about our community work:
We also work with schools and education providers to improve outcomes for learners from all backgrounds.
