Global environmental futures theme

Exploring new science frontiers, finding solutions to intractable problems, and influencing public policy, are at the heart of the QUEX program on Global Environmental Futures

The University of Exeter and UQ are both world-leading in environmental science, delivering research breakthroughs across many environmental challenges such as:

  • climate change,
  • clean energy, 
  • marine,
  • costal and reef science,
  • biodiversity, 
  • air and water pollution,
  • antimicrobial resistance, 
  • food security, and
  • sustainable agriculture

This theme is closely aligned to a number of UN Sustainable Development Goals.
