Researching, Teaching, and Building for a World on the Move
We study how all living things — humans, animals, insects, microorganisms, plant life — migrate from place to place on our planet. They cross borders, escape threats, live with changing climates and food supplies, recreate habitats, develop cultural patterns, seek improved quality of life, adapt and evolve, or face extinction.
To sustain these populations in motion, we create new approaches to infrastructure, urban design, housing, health and nutrition, disaster relief, conservation, legal frameworks, economies, business models, geopolitical systems, technologies, and more.
Education — through multidisciplinary research, teaching, and engagement — can prepare future leaders, scientists, policymakers, entrepreneurs, and community members to thrive in a world on the move.
