Stirling Environment and Energy Network (SEEN)

About

We are a multi-disciplinary network of Stirling-based environment and energy researchers working around the theme of the “perfect storm”, developed by Professor Sir John Beddington, former Chief Scientific Advisor to the UK Government.

“There is an intrinsic link between the challenge we face to ensure food security through the 21st century and other global issues, most notably climate change, population growth and the need to sustainably manage the world’s rapidly growing demand for energy and water. It is predicted that by 2030 the world will need to produce 50 per cent more food and energy, together with 30 per cent more available fresh water, whilst mitigating and adapting to climate change. This threatens to create a ‘perfect storm’ of global events.”

Professor Sir John Beddington, “Food, Energy, Water and the Climate: a Perfect Storm of Global Events?

There is considerable expertise in environment and energy in a wide range of subject areas at Stirling. Deepening knowledge and improving the quality of research often requires interaction between experts across disciplinary boundaries. Set up in 2013 and hosted by the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, SEEN provides a hub to connect researchers at Stirling and beyond and to foster fresh inter-disciplinary understanding and perspectives through sharing ideas and organising events.

There are a number of sub-groups in SEEN:  energy and environment; heritage and identities; human adaptation; food and water; environment and health; corporate social responsibility; valuation of environmental resources; environmental justice and learning for sustainability.
