About LeAP

The Centre for Land, Environment and People (LEAP) is an interdisciplinary hub of Lincoln University research relating to sustainability transitions.


With global challenges such as climate change and biodiversity loss, understanding how societies can transition in ways that are also socially just is one of the most urgent tasks of the twenty-first century.

Combining scholarly understanding and problem solving, the Centre provides a public platform to share high-quality research at Lincoln University to extend the collective impact of research, contribute to public debate, and promote the wellbeing of the environment, society and its diverse cultures.

Based in the Department of Environmental Management in the Faculty of Environment, Society and Design, LEAP provides a public platform to share high-quality research relating to sustainability transitions at Lincoln University, spanning various disciplines and theoretical and applied analysis.

More specifically, it seeks to:

  • Extend the collective impact of research by strengthening the interface between research and end-users, especially policy-makers and relevant industry;
  • Support and facilitate the critic and conscience role of the University by contributing to public debate through scholarly understanding, critique, creativity and problem-solving; and
  • Promote stewardship, health and wellbeing of the environment, society and its diverse cultures.
