The challenge of change
The Global Change Institute (GCI) at The University of Queensland, Australia, is an independent source of game-changing research, ideas and advice for solving the challenges of a rapidly changing world.
Environmental change will affect us all. As the global population grows, urbanisation increases and technology advances, there will be untold impact on our surrounding environment.
GCI works to address the impacts of climate change, technological innovation and population growth through collaborative research across four key themes.
