The Centre for Sustainability is an interdisciplinary research centre working on local and global sustainability challenges.

Our research covers the interrelated streams of Food & Agriculture, Environment and People, and Energy.

We collaborate closely with our stakeholders, who include communities, iwi, industry and government agencies. For many projects, we form teams with other researchers from across New Zealand and internationally.

We generate high-quality research, both practical as well as theoretical. Our research informs choices, adaptations and transformations in both policy and practice to enhance social, cultural, environmental and economic wellbeing.

We believe that complex social-environmental issues can best be addressed by valuing local and traditional knowledge, complementing knowledge generated by scientists and social scientists.
