Environmental science and public policy have a critical relationship in the pursuit of more sustainable socio-economic practices since social-ecological systems emphasize the integrated and connected nature of ecological and human systems. It is therefore imperative to understand the biophysical world in innovative ways, the influences upon it from humans, and the causes of individual behaviours and societal practices that are no longer sustainable. Responses codified in policy and/or made actionable through social programs and our own pedagogies offer novel points through which to examine and explore the collective priorities of institutional (formal and informal) agendas. ESRC’s and Brock’s location within a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve invites and compels us to explore these intersections among and between sustainable human and social development more fully than ever before in our institution’s history.
