Society and Heritage
This research stream explores how changes in society and the natural environment interact and seeks to integrate environmental values within social practices and policy.
It explores the ethnohistoric and documentary evidence for change in socio-ecological systems to understand the legacies that operate and influence natural systems today.
By drawing on socio-cultural evidence, this stream will validate complimentary approaches and strengthen knowledge banks for environmental restoration practice. It will seek to integrate environmental values and research outcomes into economic, political and health systems.
