Research and Skills

Sharing Evidence-Based Research

The Earth Trust undertakes primary and collaborative research under our three key work programmes: Future Forests, Food & Farming and Water & Wetlands, in order to develop sustainable best practise models. Our research is applied, aiming to provide an evidence base for best practise in all areas of our work, from land management to working with people.

We also welcome and encourage the use of our research assets by researchers working across a broad range of fields including archaeology, social science, sound mapping, engineering, and business and economics.

This digital gateway allows you to explore all aspects of research. We use this central hub to:

  • Share evidence-based learnings from our key work programmes as we explore sustainable land management best practise models.
  • Showcase what we can offer in terms of higher education field visits, student research projects, and flexible student placements.
  • Promote the Earth Trust as a prime location for collaborative research programmes.
This page is continually evolving as we have more and more research and data to share.
