Systemic Ethics, Responsibility, and Sustainability (SERS)

We partner with academic institutions worldwide to address global systemic problems through education and research. This forms our SERS International Network.

A global network

The SERS International Network facilitates partnerships that connect academic groups and institutions across continents, to develop education, research, and engagement in Ethics, Responsibility, and Sustainability (ERS).

We operate in accordance with principles of open consultation, participation, reciprocity, responsible ownership, and support for diversity of ideas.

We stimulate partnerships in education and research collaboration, as well as staff and student mentoring.

Our Network facilitates international learning experiences for our Members’ students, through intra- and extra-curricular activities.

To achieve these objectives, we also engage with other international networks, industry bodies, community organisations, professional and government agencies.
