In the face of unprecedented and increasing anthropogenic challenges to the ecosystem processes that sustain life on earth in an age now dubbed the ‘Anthropocene’, it is essential that we understand the diverse factors shaping human-environment engagements.

‘Environmental’ problems are invariably human problems, so knowledge of the social dimension of such issues not only informs management and adaptation interventions, but also powerfully illuminates the depth and complexity of human environmental experience in a way that morally engages an increasingly receptive public.

The Ecology, People, Place research group therefore seeks to create productive synergies among scholars from diverse disciplines who are researching interactions between societies and environments in diverse contexts. It provides a prominent UWA-based hub for academic natural, social and physical scientists and engineers and other scientific practitioners as well as external organisations seeking input or collaborators from the social sciences and humanities.
