The world is changing at a rate and scale unprecedented in human history. How can we meet humanity's needs in just and innovative ways while protecting the environment on which life depends?

The Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies is confronting this challenge through imaginative research that transcends disciplinary boundaries; through hands-on educational initiatives that bridge classrooms and communities; and through public programs that foster environmental conversations among people from business, government, academia and advocacy.

The Nelson Institute is home to three interdisciplinary research centers that serve as laboratories and incubators for solutions to the world's most critical environmental challenges.
