The Sustainability Studies program is designed to foster a deep understanding of how humans interact with the natural world, while recognizing the need for humans to live on the income from nature’s capital rather than on the capital itself. While the natural sciences provide advice, targets, critiques and technological solutions to achieve sustainability, the social sciences and humanities contribute to the development of effective policy and ethical options to achieve these goals.
