The International Ecological Footprint Learning Lab: Training, research, and novel applications

Co-Project Investigators: Peter Victor with Brynhildur Davidsdottir (University of Iceland), Tarmo Remmel, Eric Miller, Katie Kish and the Global Footprint Network

Funding: SSHRC Partnership Grant

Term: 2022-2028

This SSHRC Partnership Grant draws on the strengths of York university, the University of Iceland, the British Columbia Institute of Technology, and the Global Footprint Network, creating a concentration of novel research applications and teaching expertise now unavailable. Having employed explicit equity, diversity, and inclusion tactics for building this partnership, the collaborative constitutes a diverse group of people from Indigenous communities, the United States, the UK, Austria, Spain, Switzerland, France, Mexico, Chile, Egypt, and Sri Lanka. The partnership's overarching goal is to teach, apply, decolonise, and improve upon the measurement of Ecological Footprint and Biocapacity through four main objectives: 1) Train an interdisciplinary generation of sustainability students; 2) Forge a vibrant international EFB research network; 3) Generate novel sustainability solutions; and 4) Transform global sustainability practices: We will disseminate findings and solutions through a comprehensive knowledge mobilization plan which focuses on innovative approaches for taking research to action.
