About


School of Environmental and Social Studies (Anthroposchool) is a newly made interdisciplinary institute within the structure of the University of Tyumen (Tyumen State University). Most of Athroposchool’s activities are based on the idea that only knowledge that combines the approaches of the natural sciences and the humanities can respond to modern global environmental challenges.
