Environmental Change Institute

Description

ECI is an interdisciplinary unit administered within the Oxford University Centre for the Environment that undertakes research on environmental issues, teaches an MSc in Environmental Change and Management, and fosters university-wide networks and outreach on the environment.

Founded 1991 through benefactions, ECI was designed to answer questions about how and why the environment is changing and how can we respond through public policy, private enterprise, and social initiatives.

ECI research and teaching is characterised by a focus on global and regional environmental change, through projects that bring together the natural and social sciences, and by an orientation to applied and public policy. The research is grouped around three interlocking themes: Climate, Ecosystems, and Energy. Many research projects have a goal of influencing and informing public policy and decisions about the environment. The Institute is also promoting research initiatives and fostering collaborations in the fields of food and water.

Uniquely in the UK, the ECI is playing a lead role in the Government’s three major climate and energy research initiatives: UK Climate Impacts Programme, the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, and the UK Energy Research Centre. ECI’s cross-disciplinary innovation has been acknowledged in it becoming a founding partner of Oxford’s £60m James Martin 21st Century School.

Most ECI staff are full time researchers and scientists working on specific externally funded projects within these research themes although we also host a number of senior research fellows working more independently on cross-cutting issues.

Graduate School of the Environment at the Centre for Alternative Technology

Description

In 1994 the University of East London (UEL) started the MSc Architecture: Advanced Environmental and Energy Studies. Originally based at UEL’s London campus, in 2000 the course moved to CAT, giving students the opportunity to learn in beautiful, inspiring and innovative surroundings.
Since then it has grown rapidly, leading to the formation in 2007 of the Graduate School of the Environment (GSE). The GSE now offers several high-standard programmes at postgraduate level.

Based in the Wales Institute for Sustainable Education (WISE), the Graduate School at CAT is a world class training centre with over 35 years expertise in sustainability practice. GSE offers unparalleled teaching and accommodation facilities, including:

  • A large rammed earth lecture theatre
  • Seminar rooms and workshops
  • Research laboratories
  • IT suite
  • Offices, common rooms and reception areas
  • 24 en-suite study bedrooms
  • Restaurant and Bar

WISE is a state of the art eco-educational facility. Designed by architects Pat Borer and David Lea, it is a beautiful combination of environmentally conscious design and cutting-edge sustainable building techniques. The venue is sensitively constructed out of low embodied energy materials such as hemp and lime, rammed earth and sustainably sourced timber. The supply of on-site renewable energy sources, including biomass and solar power, means that WISE is a truly sustainable place to study.

Oxford Martin School

Description

The Oxford Martin School at the University of Oxford is a world-leading centre of pioneering research, debate and policy for a sustainable and inclusive future.

The great challenges of our time - such as rapid globalisation, population growth, emerging pandemics, or climate change - share one feature.

All refuse to sit neatly within traditional academic disciplines. This common factor makes these challenges difficult to grapple with, whether as individuals, businesses, or governments, and therefore for societies as a whole.

The University of Oxford’s response is the Oxford Martin School. No other university, anywhere in the world, hosts a research organisation like the Oxford Martin School. Its community of more than 200 researchers, from Oxford and beyond, are working to address the most pressing global challenges and opportunities of the 21st century.

Each research programme brings together academics from more than one field to create the collaboration needed for studying and tackling complex global issues. With more than 20 programmes, subjects are as diverse as the future of the global food system, geo-engineering, human rights of future generations and innovation in healthcare.

The Oxford Martin School was founded in 2005. It was made possible through the vision and generosity of Dr James Martin (1933-2013), who established the school with the largest benefaction made to Oxford in its history.
