"The Nicholas School conducts research that pushes forward the frontiers of knowledge, focused on the most pressing issues of our contemporary age, like climate change, environmental pollution and its health consequences and biodiversity loss. We approach these issues not just from a scientific understanding perspective but also from a social scientific aspect, connecting humans to these problems in meaningful ways. Through sustained community engagement and a wide variety of techniques we are creating the next generation of environmental stewards."
