What is RIPPLES?

RIPPLES is an interdisciplinary group of early career researchers whose work focuses on the interaction between government policy and grassroots practice in local and community-led sustainability initiatives.

We are each addressing similar questions but from different angles, using different theoretical approaches, applied to different policy areas and in different geographical locations.  By coming together, we are able to share knowledge and build on each other’s work to provide more informed research outputs and identify the research gaps that still exist.
