OrganisersKeele Institute for Sustainable Futures
Launch event for the Keele Institute for Sustainable Futures.The Institute for Sustainable Futures contributes to research, education and training that has positive impact on the long-term sustainability of our societies, environments and ecosystems across local to global scales. We bring together the natural and social sciences, arts and humanities, and work with staff who already explicitly align their research to the sustainability challenges we face, as well as work with others to develop the sustainability and sustainability applications of their work. We work closely with a range of local to global stakeholders, from business, to community groups, non-governmental organisations, and government, to identify the real problems that our societies, environments and ecosystems face, and work collaboratively on solutions to make our research have real impact. The Institute for Sustainable Futures is inclusive, supporting all those, at any stage of their career, and from any background, who want their work to contribute to a more sustainable future. We bring together different disciplines and stakeholders, those that may not often meet, with a view to respectfully sharing different perspectives, understanding and methods, and through this developing, holistic, innovative solutions to some of the world’s sustainability challenges.
