SUSTAINABILITY & BIODIVERSITY

Helsinki Institute of Sustainability Science (HELSUS) is a new cross-faculty research unit in sustainability science within the University of Helsinki. The mission of the institute is to contribute to sustainability transformations of societies by means of interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research and education. The research focuses in particular on Urban Studies, Consumption and Production, and Global South and Arctic contexts. There are around 50 professors and more than 290 researchers associated to the institute in the HELSUS faculties. HELSUS forms an attractive international and interdisciplinary research community for professors and researchers working with sustainability topics.

To address complex sustainability challenges, Aalto Sustainability Hub works to increase interdisciplinary collaboration and to promote sustainability in teaching, campus development and other operations at Aalto.
