PSSRG is at the forefront of innovation and research addressing multiple areas of sustainablility. The group has played a central role in galvinising a research field exploring surfing and sustainability. However, our work extends beyond these boundaries addressing multiple sustainability related themes.
The emphasis of the groups work is 'sustainable transitions' which fundamentally involves rethinking our current model of development. Society requires a new set of tools and perspectives for undersatnding how to acheive this transition. Sustainability requires a radical change in the way that we operate and interact and this can only be acheived through understanding the external and internal governance dynamics of orgnasiations and the people that are part of them.
Adopting an inclusive environment creates a platform where sustainability can be fostered through the transfer of knowledge between academia, government, NGOs and industry. Some of the groups outputs and most recent research projects are highlighted on this page. If you have an idea for a research project of any scale please get in contact
