In order to develop an understanding of the structure and function of urban ecosystems and to advance a balanced interaction between humans and their environments in cities and towns worldwide, the Society for Urban Ecology (SURE) exists to foster and develop knowledge and implementation of urban ecology worldwide by strengthening contacts and enriching the dialogue between researchers and practitioners, by representing the interests of the academic community within the wider international institutional context and by making the collective expertise of SURE available, where appropriate, in furthering the discussion of urban ecological issues.

SURE set up a collaboration with MDPI and its journals SustainabilityEnvironments and Urban Science. Through the collaboration SURE members benefit among other things from discounts for open access articles and books (http://www.society-urban-ecology.org/publications/journalsarticles/).
