HDES: Human Dimensions of Environmental Systems
The mission of Human Dimensions of Environmental Systems (HDES) is to enhance scholarship on the mutual interdependence of humans and their physical and social environments. Built on the premise that the best insights are not limited to the perspectives of a single discipline or approach, we emphasize the interdisciplinary study of how we affect or environments, how our environments affect us, and how both can thrive together. We recognize the superiority of no discipline, paradigm, methodology, or approach, but seek to develop new scholarship and understand by bridging and integrating disciplinary knowledge. With full knowledge, both humans and the environment can thrive.
