In the field of sustainability, the Newcastle Institute for Sustainability coordinates research across traditional discipline boundaries to deliver practical, engaged solutions to real-world issues, under the banner of Enough, For All, Forever. To date it has acted to develop and strengthen relationships which support regional, national and international interdisciplinary research relating to sustainability. Building upon this, the Institute for Sustainability will draw upon its areas of established research excellence and the experience of collaborating partners to make an internationally-leading contribution to the following global research challenges in the field of sustainability:

Inspired by the Making Universities Sustainable Conference in Copenhagen 2014 a global email-list was set up for the Sustainability Professionals to provide a global network for sharing best practice in the field of sustainability and its application to university operations. This email discussion list is for everything sustainability-related, it is a place to share bright ideas and best practice to ensure collaboration on a global scale to tackle the issues surrounding sustainability.
