The world around us is changing, and Oxford researchers are at the forefront of trying to better understand the reasons for global temperature and sea level increases, extreme weather events, plastic waste proliferation and threats to biodiversity. With this understanding, our researchers are working with partners in industry, government, the third sector and at other universities to address these challenges and to propose innovative approaches and solutions.

In this publication you will hear from Oxford experts on the effects of human-induced climate change, the economic implications of environmental policies, the need to think carefully about our global food system, and how best to integrate renewable energy into our lives.

You will read about how Oxford researchers are helping to tackle the plastics crisis, preserve our marine ecosystems, identify climate-related security threats, and make the UK’s water system more resilient.

From water to weather, fuel to food; from how we power our homes to how we protect the landscape around us, Oxford’s cross- disciplinary research approach is helping to better understand the complexities and interactions of human activity and the sustainability of our environment.

Take part in the discussion, make informed decisions, collaborate on the next big breakthrough – and discover how Oxford research is making a positive impact on our changing world.
