Society

From the cultural and economic landscapes of countries that span the globe, to our own backyards and impacts in our local communities, human geographers and marine policy specialists strive to better understand how we impact and are impacted by the world in which we live.

Understanding environmental challenges in the context of the complex relationships between living and non-living resources is fundamental to successfully addressing them and developing workable solutions grounded in sound policy. The issues are multifaceted and demand innovative, interdisciplinary, and often international approaches that utilize cutting-edge technologies.

Renewable energy is an increasingly important resource for balancing societal and environmental needs. CEOE partnered with Gamesa Technology Corporation to build a wind turbine on the Hugh R. Sharp Campus in Lewes that not only serves as a research platform, but also provides electricity to help power campus facilities.
