Sustainable Europe Research Institute SERI Germany Charity Profile
The Sustainable Europe Research Institute (SERI) is a Pan-European think tank exploring sustainable development options for European societies. It was set up in September 1999. Sustainability strategies must be integrated or they are not sustainable. SERI therefore takes a comprehensive view of sustainability both empirically and in its policy recommendations.
SERI integrates the ecological objective to reduce environmental space use with elaborated economic, social and institutional sustainability strategies. SERI develops strategies on the macro, meso, micro and meta levels of economies/societies. SERI looks at the impact of activities and policies in Europe on other parts of the world. SERI's work is based on methodological pluralism.
On the other hand we are far from working on everything important in the field of sustainable development. While integrating ecological, social, economic and institutional dimensions, SERI focuses the notion of environmental space (in terms of resources, energy and land-use) and the measurability of social and economic dimensions of SD. Indicator-based policies are therefore important for our recommendations.
