Working Groups

We develop and support inter- and transdisciplinary working groups focused on solving important contemporary challenges in environmental and sustainability science and policy. Through these problem/topic based working groups, TFISE provides a platform to encourage transdisciplinary research, curriculum development, and/or academic and community engagement.  Working groups are dynamic entities, and current examples include:

  • Built Environment
  • Food Systems Initiative
  • Sustainable Nanotechnology
  • Urban Forest Initiative
  • Water Systems

A long-term goal is for the working group to become UK's resident experts in specific areas related to environmental and sustainability science and policy as well as to serve as a resource for the academic and corporate communities, and the general public.
