Our living environment is constantly changing, and this creates societal challenges. The Department of Geography, Spatial Planning and Environment (GPM) focuses on the question of how individuals and society, whether nearby or far away, interact with their living environments. Geographers analyse the relationship between the activities of individuals, businesses and institutions and their spatial environments; spatial planners decide how to intervene in spatial developments; and environmental scientists mainly study the consequences for nature and the environment and how we can attain sustainable societies. Considering they all explore the same themes from different perspectives and often work together professionally, at Radboud they are united in one department.
