The research at LUCSUS focuses on sustainability challenges such as water conflicts, food security, land use changes and urban transformation - and is often conducted in international cooperation. We have a strong international research profile through the centre’s involvement in the Earth System Governance Project and by the appointment as a Right Livelihood College. We also coordinate the Linnaeus program LUCID (Lund University Centre of Excellence for Integration of Social and Natural Dimensions of Sustainability).
Our education consist of our master’s program, LUMES (Lund University International Masters' Programme in Environmental Studies and Sustainability Science) and our PhD-programme in sustainability science.
LUCSUS runs an extensive outreach and impact activities programme - to advance the societal dialogue on sustainability. Through this programme, we communicate our research to society - in close collaboration with stakeholders, governments and non-governmental organisations.
