Opportunities for post-graduate studies in Sustainability in the Garden Route
The SRU has funding opportunities for post-graduate students at PhD and Master's level with a keen interest in trans-disciplinary research at the interface between society and ecosystems, and sustainability, in the Garden Route.
We have great news! The SRU has won the NMMU Engagement Excellence Award (Team Award) for 2014. We would like to thank our entire team and all of our partners for helping us achieve this.
The SRU, in collaboration with the Southern Cape Landowners Initiative (SCLI), facilitated the establishing of the Kaaimans-to-Touw (KTT) Eco-restoration forum.
See the KTT blog here.
Who we are
The Sustainability Research Unit is home to a group of critical thinkers dedicated to promoting the sustainability and resilience of social-ecological systems. We focus on the crossing point between ecosystems and society, on understanding the processes that influence human behaviour and therefore the sustainability of society, water, earth, plant and animal resources.
To us, sustainability is a way of life. It has many joys but also requires sacrifices and, above all, comes with responsibilities. Read more here.
