Sustainability

Sustainability is a critical, but often under examined, dimension of public health research which relates to both to the healthcare sector directly and the wider determinants of health and interventions to influence these across all sectors.

This pillar explores the links between and research opportunities related to health, climate change and sustainability. We aim to create guidance and tools to embed sustainability thinking in healthcare and public health research. Activity in this space is highly interdisciplinary and collaborative, and we welcome anyone interested in connecting with the pillar from across all schools of the university.

The Sustainability Pillar is led by Dr Jonathan Cullen and Dr James Smith.
