Our Mission

The mission of the Environment, Energy, Sustainability & Health Institute (E²SHI) is to position Johns Hopkins University as a leader in integrative approaches to global environmental change, sustainability, and their related health challenges. We achieve this mission by creating a vibrant, interactive community of scholars who are committed to working across disciplines. This community undertakes research, educates future leaders, and develops policies addressing the need for an environment that supports the health of individuals, communities, and ecosystems.

  1. Develop strategies for leadership in research and education in integrative approaches to global environmental change, sustainability and their related health challenges.
  2. Promote the development of interdisciplinary research collaborations, proposals, and funded research.
  3. Develop partnerships with the business sector, federal, state and local agencies, environmental groups and Baltimore community organizations.
