The emerging field of Sustainability Science ranges over global, regional and local issues, events, agents and its relations and interactions. Sustainability Science focuses on the two important interfaces between the natural sciences and the social sciences and between scientific knowledge and the use of that knowledge by society in order to promote its Sustainable Development. Sustainability research is being developed primarily in the interfaces among existing areas of knowledge. It is thus explicitly multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary, its objective being to create new forms of cooperation across subject boundaries and over widely differing fields of knowledge.
