International Sustainable Development Research Society

The International Sustainable Development Research Society (ISDRS) aims to foster and communicate the importance of sustainable development in a global society. The society is a coalition of academic researchers, teachers, government, non-governmental organizations and industry. It promotes inter- and trans-disciplinary research and education for sustainable development.

The society builds upon the 18-year history of the International Sustainable Development Research Conference and its associated journals. The International Sustainable Development Research Society was announced at the Helsinki conference in 2005 and was formally launched in Hong Kong in 2006. The conference continues to be hosted annually in different countries. In 2007 it was held in Västerås (Sweden), in 2008 in New Delhi (India), in 2009 it took place in Utrecht (The Netherlands), in 2010 in Hong Kong (China), and in 2011 in New York City, USA.

As an open and inclusive society, our vision is to establish a forum where diverse research communities can come together creating a transparent dialogue on key problems, issues, initiatives, policies and strategies needed to make progress on sustainable development a reality.
The International Sustainable Development Research Society aims to promote collaboration and dialogue of a high quality, to build bridges between different research communities. We hope to build bridges between research and its applications in society. We promote collaboration between communities in developed and developing countries. This is achieved through involving all stakeholders and we invite you to take part in this growing and vibrant research.

Hull Department of Geography

The Department of Geography offers superb teaching, first-class facilities and excellent employment prospects.

In the 2010 National Student Survey, 94% of full-time students taking physical and environmental science were satisfied with their course. Furthermore, 93% of those taking human or social geography expressed satisfaction.

We’re based in Cohen, a grade two-listed building that’s part of the university’s conservation area, and have world-class teaching labs.

Closer to home we also study Yorkshire’s moors and Hull’s regeneration projects.

We’re a medium-sized department with more than 20 lecturers, 300 undergraduates and a network of Masters and PhD students.

We have a leading research department – the 2008 RAE results showed 90% of our research was of international standard – and the vast majority of our graduates start work or further study soon after they leave us.

We also help schools and the community by organising geography masterclasses that offer pupils a taste of life as an undergraduate.
