The Centre for Sustainable Practice and Living (CSPL) is a collaborative initiative between the University of Stirling’s Management School and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency. It was launched by Dr Aileen McLeod MSP, Scotland’s Minister for Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform on 5th June 2015, World Environment Day.
As a new interdisciplinary research centre it aims to become one of the leading research and knowledge exchange centres globally studying the many dimensions of sustainability. CSPL brings together the public sector, academic research, business and environmental organisations to work collaboratively with sectors and communities towards a more sustainable future and a low carbon economy.
A virtual network
Although physically based at the University of Stirling the Centre is also a virtual network of experts across the public, academic and NGO sectors throughout the UK and beyond.
