Sherwood Institute

New website coming soon

Sherwood Institute is a non-profit founded in 2009 in San Francisco by a group of forward-looking engineers seeking to address some of humankind’s most pressing problems.

Modern cities depend upon a fragile web of systems currently on the brink of collapse – central to these are the water, energy and ecological networks that are unraveling.

The increasing scale and threat of ecosystem collapse, drought, catastrophic flooding, water wars and energy crises point to the challenges ahead. Sherwood Institute’s mission is to get the policies, plans and technologies in place to support the rapid transition to resilient energy, water and ecological infrastructure.

The Institute is supported by a group of the world’s leading experts from Asia, the US and Europe.
