  • The discipline of anthropology provides a unique perspective on human-environmental interactions and thus generates valuable insights into the social, political, and cultural complexity of modern environmental problems. Anthropologists are hard at work with governments, conservation organizations, and community groups to understand and solve complex environmental problems. This section is designed to challenged students to think about the environment and conservation in a new way, allowing them to help reframe these debates and develop innovative solutions to the complex problems that confront us.
