We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of country throughout Australia and recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.

O-Week Update: Our website is still currently under construction. Some pages may be light on info. We’re aiming to have it complete ASAP!

The Environment Collective exists as an independent, democratically-run student department within the ANU Student Association (ANUSA). In our role as a department we provide advocacy for the environment and sustainability, supporting students and others to learn about and take action on environmental and social justice issues.

Learning, advocacy, and information-sharing: Through our regular meetings, documentary screenings, seminars and other events and projects, we aim to educate students and others about sustainability by providing spaces for discussion, and opportunities to learn and share knowledge. 

Facilitating action on sustainability: The Collective exists to support students interested in campaigns, conferences, events, and in leading or co-hosting projects of their own. We want to encourage sustainable action in all forms and across all disciplines, whether activists or advocates, artists or scientists – we’re here to support your idea. 

Beyond the environment, and beyond our campus: The ANU Environment Collective recognises that environmental and social justice issues are inseparable, and that fighting for a sustainable future means realising a world in which all people and all beings can live in peace, dignity, and freedom. In recognition of this, many of our projects take a broader aim, addressing environmental issues in ways that often include co-benefits for other groups and causes. Change begins at home, too, so we aim to make both our university and our wider community sustainable and just.
