The Environmental Governance Working Group (EGWG) at Colorado State University, was created in 2008 as a joint project of the Department of Political Science and the School of Global Environmental Sustainability at Colorado State University. We are a multidisciplinary community of scholars seeking to advance research on environmental governance and sustainability. For the purposes of this multi-disciplinary project, we define environmental governance as the formal and informal institutions, policies, rules, and practices that shape how humans interact with the environment at all levels of social organization. Our network includes faculty, researchers and graduate students from across the Colorado State University campus; decision-makers working for federal, state, and local agencies and non-profits; and scholars based at institutions around the world. EGWG provides intellectual space for multidisciplinary dialogue on environmental governance research through study groups, seminars, e-mail updates, and conferences.
