Research and partnerships

From the built environment and active travel, to environmental management, and sustainable business, behaviour change, green technologies, sustainable food and product design, UWE Bristol is contributing to a sustainable and healthy future through applied research and collaborations with organisations and communities.

Research and knowledge exchange

UWE Bristol’s research and knowledge exchange activities support the goal of sustainable development and address many of the urgent challenges associated with this agenda.

See a sample of some of the research projects undertaken in the areas of sustainability, health and environment. You can also visit UWE Bristol’s Research Repository to explore our publications and presentations relating to the broad university engagement with sustainability.

Bristol Green Capital

The University has made a significant commitment over the years to the Bristol Green Capital, a unique partnership of over 850+ member organisations who have committed to working towards Bristol becoming a sustainable city with a high-quality of life for all.

We were a strategic partner and strong supporter during the European Green Capital year, and ran numerous events and activities on and off campus. Find out more about our involvement in Bristol Green Capital.

More recently, we were involved in the development of the partnership into a Community Interest Company and Professor James Longhurst, Assistant Vice-Chancellor for Environment and Sustainability, is currently a board member.

Services for organisations and communities

Working with business, public bodies and the third sector to support the creation of a sustainable, low carbon and healthy future is core to the ethos of the University. Please contact us if you would like to find out more about research, consultancy or continuing professional development opportunities within the fields of sustainability, health and environment.
