Welcome to the SHCRP

The goal of the Sustainable and Healthy Communities Research Program is to develop solutions to environmental problems that are ecologically, economically, and socially sustainable over many generations. Our approach is transdisciplinary and depends on innovation and systems thinking in order to avoid unintended consequences. We are currently proposing to focus on projects at the community and regional scales, and that consider the physical and biological environment, human health, land stewardship, and environmental justice.
