Program description

Do you wish to contribute to finding solutions for issues related to planet Earth? Do you have a background in natural sciences? Then the programme Earth and Environment is an excellent choice!

Planet Earth is a fascinating and complex system supporting all life and containing priceless natural resources that are exploited by mankind for the supply of food, water, energy and other commodities. Planet Earth, however, is under significant pressure. It is becoming increasingly difficult to sustain an ever growing human population and to secure a sustainable society for future generations. Scarcity of water, soil degradation, loss of biodiversity, vulnerability to severe weather and climate change are just a few examples of complex and major issues that need to be addressed. Geoscientists at Wageningen University study planet Earth, its resources and its liveability. Using tools from physics, chemistry, biology and mathematics, they build a quantitative understanding of the composition, structures and processes of the Earth and its atmosphere, and the influence of human activity. In this way, they play an important role in improving natural resource management and in removing obstacles to sustainable development.
