About The Programme

The Jindal School of Environment & Sustainability (JSES) is working to lead the world towards a sustainable future with innovative teaching, practice‑based learning and impact‑driven research. The world today is facing an increasing array of environmental challenges that require greater levels of innovation and collaboration among industry, government, academia and communities at large. The ongoing environmental crises are accompanied by lacunae in human resource development and relevant research at various levels. JSES aims to fill this gap by combining theory and practice of environment & sustainability studies, research, outreach, advocacy and capacity building. The primary goal of JSES is to offer students a concentration in environment and sustainability studies with opportunities to explore how humans interact with the environment, including physical, biological, economic, philosophical, social and legal elements.
