Interdisciplinary Environmental Association

Who We Are

The Interdisciplinary Environmental Association is an academic 501c3 nonprofit organization committed to the exchange and generation of knowledge between scholars, researchers, practitioners, activists, and students in the expansive field of environmental science and interdisciplinary studies. We use a cross-boundary and cross-discipline approach to create an inclusive space through our annual academic conferences and online community to thoughtfully discuss and apply new methods of understanding and action to today's multifaceted planet and human challenges.

The IEA provides a secure and inclusive environment for academics, researchers, students, and stakeholders interested in addressing environmental challenges from an interdisciplinary perspective.


The International Interdisciplinary Conference on the Environment, IICE, facilitates the exchange of knowledge among individuals from diverse countries and disciplinary backgrounds so that participants can listen, discuss, and consider new concepts to implement in their study area.

Consider publishing in The Interdisciplinary Environmental Review (IER) a leading international journal dedicated to offering timely and pertinent insights into environmental issues from an interdisciplinary standpoint.
