International Society for Sustainability Science (ISSS)


School of Sustainability, Arizona State University
Arizona State University’s School of Sustainability is the first of its kind: a comprehensive degree-granting program with a transdisciplinary focus on finding real-world solutions to environmental, economic, and social challenges. Established in spring 2007 and enrolling undergraduates since fall 2008, the School is part of the Global Institute of Sustainability. The mission of the school is to bring together multiple disciplines and leaders to create and share knowledge, train a new generation of scholars and practitioners, and develop practical solutions to some of the most pressing environmental, economic, and social challenges of sustainability, especially as they relate to urban areas.
Graduate Program in Sustainability Science, The University of Tokyo
Graduate Program in Sustainability Science (GPSS) is an international graduate program to train internationally-minded professionals and researchers that can help create a sustainable society. This program started in October 2007 as an interdepartmental program of five departments in the Division of Environmental Studies of the Graduate School of Frontier Sciences, the University of Tokyo, and it grants the degree of "Master of Sustainability Science" or "Ph.D. in Sustainability Science".

In 2011, a new doctor-degree education program named “Graduate Program in Sustainability Science—Global Leadership Initiative” was started. It is a collaborative program among GPSS and Integrated Research System for Sustainability Science (IR3S), and United Nations University (UNU), which aims to cultivate the next generation of “global leaders” for sustainable development.

United Nations University Institute for Sustainability and Peace (UNU-ISP)
The United Nations University offers postgraduate programmes leading to master’s or doctoral degrees to strengthen the capacities of academic and scientific communities around the globe, particularly in developing countries and countries in transition. The programmes aim to equip graduates with a combination of broad comprehensive multidisciplinary knowledge to understand problems in a holistic sense and a deeper understanding of environmental sustainability in addressing current issues related to global change.
