Sustainability Education and research partnerships

We all have an opportunity to let sustainability guide our actions and join a shared mission to become the world's most sustainable university.

The following is a non-exhaustive list of our sustainability related education and research networks and partnerships. If you are involved in a network/partnership that is not listed here, please contact the Sustainability Team.

Education for Sustainability

Education for Sustainability Tasmania (EfS Tas) is a United Nations recognised Regional Centre of Expertise (RCE) on Education for Sustainable Development. It is a network of leaders in sustainability research, training and education, working towards social, cultural, economic and environmental sustainability, using education as a central tool. Get involved in Efs Tas through the Education for Sustainability Community of Practice (EfS CoP) at the University of Tasmania.

PRME equips students with the understanding and ability to deliver change tomorrow, through advancing the Sustainable Development Goals.

Sustainable Development Solutions Network Australia, New Zealand & Pacific

Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) mobilises scientific and technical expertise from academia, civil society, and the private sector in support of sustainable development problem solving at local, national, and global scales. SDSN Australia, New Zealand & Pacific fosters global SDSN activities within the region by developing and promoting solutions, policies and public education.

Staff of regional SDSN member institutions are also invited to join the SDSN Mobilize member platform, where you can join different groups.

Centre for Marine Socioecology

The Centre for Marine Socioecology (CMS) was established to address the current and future use of our marine coasts and oceans. CMS is a unique collaboration between the University of Tasmania and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), with support from the Australian Antarctic Division.

It brings together disciplinary expertise in physics, law, economics, biology, sociology, psychology, human health, art, media, philosophy and governance. CMS uses this expertise to focus on the complex issues that are developing in the management of the marine estate.

Blue Economy Cooperative Research Centre

The Blue Economy CRC brings together expertise in the seafood, marine renewable energy and offshore marine engineering sectors to deliver innovative solutions that will transform the way we use our oceans.

Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Cooperative Research Centre

Between 1991 and 2019 the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Cooperative Research Centre (ACE CRC) was Australia’s primary vehicle for understanding the role of the Antarctic region in the global climate system, and the implications for marine ecosystems. The organisation was a strong and productive collaboration that included the Australian Antarctic Division, CSIRO, the University of Tasmania, the Bureau of Meteorology, and many other Australian and international research institutions.
