When it comes to conducting research for the greater good, we spend as much time in the field as possible. It's a practice that makes our questions more relevant, our relationships more meaningful, and our solutions more sustainable.
Public engagement requires an open and constant exchange of ideas and information. Every project is a partnership in gathering local knowledge and applying local, sustainable solutions—no matter where in the world we are working.
