About ICE CaPs


Founded in 2012 at the University of Colorado Boulder, the International Collective on Environment, Culture and Politics is a research group that examines some of today's most pressing environmental issues. ICE CaPs members and affiliates cross disciplines to apply a wide range of theories and perspectives to study issues at the human-environment interface. We work across scales from the individual to the global.

ICE CaPs explores the complex and dynamic cultural and political dimensions of environmental problems at the intersection of science and society. Individual members confront a broad range of issues such as adaptation to environmental hazards, energy conflicts, polarization of climate politics, disposal of hazardous materials, alternative environmental policies, and public engagement with and understanding of complex environmental problems. Through both empirical and theoretical work, we seek to improve understanding and broaden the discussion about the nature of evolving environmental challenges.
