Environmental Sustainability Research Centre
The Environmental Sustainability Research Centre (ESRC) pursues innovative and transdisciplinary research concerning the environment, sustainability and social-ecological resilience. In working towards this mission, the ESRC encourages transdisciplinary and environmentally oriented research by faculty, librarians, and students; catalyzes knowledge mobilization about the environment; and, engages community practitioners and policy makers to foster knowledge impacts at local through international levels about the environment.
ESRC is Centre within the Faculty of Social Sciences as well as one of five transdisciplinary hubs at Brock University. We consist of members, associates, and staff at Brock University. These include individuals from the departments of Biological Sciences, Economics, Geography, Political Science, Psychology, Tourism and Environment, and Women’s and Gender Studies. Some of the topics our members research include:
- Water resources innovation and resilience
- Meanings and measurement of sustainability
- Climate change, adaptation and transformation
- Science and public policy
- Social justice, development, and health
Our Centre is further enriched by the presence of individuals (affiliates) and linkages with institutions (institutional affiliates) beyond Brock. Ultimately, we aspire to contribute to facilitating society’s transition towards sustainability.
