With the help from the Research Office and a faculty survey, the Sustainability Office has compiled a list of sustainability researchers based on the definition below. Check out the sub-categories on the left side bar to find out what sustainability research is being conducted in each Faculty.

Sustainability Research:

Sustainability research concerns the scientific analysis, communication and performance of how to create and maintain conditions that enable societies to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Sustainability research considers the ecological, economic, social, and cultural factors and interconnections necessary for creating conditions that are at once manageable, viable, and equitable. As such, it is connected to Laurier's multi-campus, multi-disciplinary environment, core values and guiding principles through such topics as: social/environmental justice, ecological resilience, equity, diversity, human and labour rights, economic prosperity, land-use planning, resource management, socially-engaged cultural and artistic production, and health and well-being.
