The three pillars of SERS research:
- Developing and critically examining environmental policy tools and multi-level governance strategies that foster equity, collaboration and prospects for transformative change in fresh water and ocean ecosystems, food systems, and energy resources.
- Advancing ideas, techniques, and initiatives in the natural and physical sciences for ecological restoration and conservation. We focus on ecological function and diversity within human and non-human dominated ecosystems.
- Devising effective approaches to the ethics, assessment, politics and practice of sustainability and resilience. SERS is particularly focused on problems of environmental and social justice in relation to marginalized communities, and the implications of biophysical 'limits to growth' for the idea of a progressive, globally connected society.
