School of the Environment

For Our Planet and Our Future

How do we create a more sustainable world for current and future generations? Students and faculty members at Yale School of the Environment (YSE) tirelessly pursue that question every day. A community that unites experts in climate science, ecology, forests, chemistry, law, sociology, economics, and more, YSE approaches this global challenge from many perspectives. Your gifts in support of students, faculty, research, and policy can open the door to our sustainable future.

A Changing Planet

Climate change and biodiversity loss are global challenges. At the School of the Environment, researchers are working to advance sustainability and protect vulnerable populations and ecosystems. At the same time, they are dedicated to improving public education and communication so that everyone understands the challenges, risks, and solutions. And as educators, they are helping Yale’s students think nimbly, lead others, and turn research into real-world applications.
