We are inviting undergraduate and postgraduate University of Sydney students to write for the Sydney Environment Institute blog as part of our Student Series. We are keen to hear from students on environmental issues and topics, such as climate change, disaster adaption, community action, environmental imaginaries, and sustainability. We encourage submissions to loosely fit under at least one of our main themes, which include:
- Biocultural Diversities
- Environmental Imaginaries and Storytelling
- Environmental Justices
- Transition and Transformation
- Food Systems
The theme for this year’s Student Series is ‘climate futures’. This theme considers how we (as individuals and communities) imagine, understand and engage with our future as shaped by our responses to the climate crisis. We welcome creative approaches under this theme, and are happy to workshop ideas and approaches.
As a multidisciplinary research institute, we aim to broaden and develop public discourse on climate change and other significant environmental issues. Therefore, we welcome students in any degree, majors, and disciplines at the University of Sydney to pitch an idea.
Why should you write for us?
- Have your writing published online for the Sydney Environment Institute, with potential republication on other outlets
- Develop your writing skills and work with an editor
- Share your knowledge and passion for the environment
- Engage in public discourse on environmental issues
