A Global Network of Observatories
Humanities for the Environment (HfE) is a global organization of observatories working together to mobilize the arts and humanities. Our goal is to address social and environmental challenges in civil society and academic life.
Our observatories have established a number of important humanities-led partnerships with international organizations, universities and institutes promoting social and environmental justice, sustainable global and regional transformations, and research and action to deliver the SDGs.
Together they provide cross-regional platforms for sharing knowledge, understanding and vital new approaches to building a just and sustainable world.
