Social Responsibility and Sustainability

Global Environment & Society Academy 2018 Postgraduate Welcome Event

Join us for a welcome reception to meet fellow postgraduate students and faculty. Hear more about GESA and ways you can get involved, make connections and really get the most out of this year.

Who are we?

Supported by the Department of Social Responsibility & Sustainability, the Global Environment and Society Academy (GESA) is a network of experts collaborating to develop innovative solutions for the world’s most challenging problems.

Led by Prof. Pete Higgins and Prof. Elizabeth Bomberg. GESA exists as an interdisciplinary network bringing together staff, students and practitioners to enhance knowledge exchange, teaching and research. We have faculty and student members University-wide with teaching responsibilities and research interests in environment and society.

What do we do?

We act as a hub for collaboration, highlighting the importance of a multidisciplinary approach to tackling global environmental challenges. This means we develop and encourage collegiality across the University and beyond; an approach that builds a vibrant Global community of talented people at the forefront of addressing environmental issues.

What can GESA do for you?

Via our Masters and Doctoral networks, we bring together students from across the University to explore interdisciplinary perspectives and encourage collegiality. We have a very active community and an approachable Academic network. We aim to support student-led projects and initiatives and can often introduce you to the right people.




  • Reading Groups where you can hear the views of our expert speakers and discuss with other postgrad students
  • Research development events
  • Explore internships or other opportunities supported by a GESA alumni network
