Geography research at Bangor covers both human and physically aligned work, with a strong interdisciplinarity and applied focus, addressing policy issues and conducting action research with stakeholder groups.

- Sustainable communities, tourism and eco-developments (e.g. food festivals & nature-based approaches)

- Human-nature relations and environmental governance (e.g. payments for ecosystem services & social forestry)

- Food values, justice and poverty (e.g. food banks & redistribution networks)

- Reconstruction of terrestrial glacial environments
