What Is SEI?

The Sydney Environment Institute (SEI) at the University of Sydney aims to address the key questions of our time: how do we understand and redesign the fundamental relationship between human communities and the natural world that supports them; and how can people and societies adapt positively to environmental change?

SEI brings together a wide range of the University’s researchers and projects on environmental themes. Our researchers focus on the social impacts of climate change, human/non-human relations, environment and culture, sustainable cities, food security, and organisational adaptation in both the public and private realm. Our current research nodes include:

  • HfE Australia Pacific Observatory
  • Sydney Network on Climate Change and Society
  • Food, People and the Planet
  • Maricultures Environmental Research
  • Cities Network
  • Balanced Enterprise Research Network
  • Human Animal Research Network

The Institute offers a flexible and dynamic platform that will inform public discourse, decision-making, and policy in relation to the environment.
