Why Environmental Studies?
Our current paradigm for growth and development fanatically identifies increased consumption as a sign of progress. This consumption driven growth has caused several global environmental crises and threatened the achievement of key sustainable development goals such as eradicating extreme poverty and hunger. Environmental Studies brings these concerns to the core of our academic and vocational pursuits. As a field of study and an arena of activism, environmental studies can inspire innovation across policies, technologies and businesses necessary to the flourishing of life on this planet.

Why Environmental Studies?
The major environmental challenge of the 21st century is not just “sustainability. It is also “equity." These days, water can be privatised, and clean air comes at a premium. Not everyone can afford it, and not everyone gets the same hearing. To tackle these challenges, we need to understand nature as much as human behaviour. Environmental studies offers the interdisciplinary tools we need to make sense of this ever-evolving landscape, and ultimately, to help us chart a sustainable and equitable future for all.
