Welcome to Sustainable Development at Queen's

Institute for a sustainable world

Sustainable development poses some of the most serious challenges of the 21st century. QUB has prioritised research and teaching on sustainable development as a major focus of a wide range of activity for the coming years.

Our purpose in creating these pages is to provide information about, and links to, relevant work and activity within Queens and also to outside resources. This is all aimed at helping to drive forward sustainable development in the curriculum and more-sustainable working within the University, and to inform academics elsewhere, industry and business, and the wider public of the work on sustainability and sustainable development here at Queen’s.

As part of this objective we are actively encouraging any member of the university community working on sustainable development or a related subject to participate in these pages by highlighting and providing us with links to resources, related research and other information to help us keep the site up to date, responsive to latest advances and thus constantly evolving.
