Environmental Social Science group at the University of Melbourne

The Environmental Social Sciences Research Group (ESS) is part of the School of Ecosystem and Forest Sciences (SEFS) and it is aligned with SEFS’ core research themes: forests, fire, water, cities, people and society. Research disciplines in the Group include environmental sociology, environmental psychology, economics, forest management and policy. We collaborate with experts in law, policy, geography, environmental science, design, engineering, mathematics and statistics to generate creative solutions to ecosystem management issues such as bushfire, forest management, water resources, land management, biosecurity, fisheries and urban sustainability. We work in partnership with policy makers, practitioners and communities to co-produce knowledge that is relevant and useful for decision making.
