We invite undergraduate and postgraduate students at the University of Sydney to write for the Sydney Environment Institute blog.

We want to hear your unique perspectives on our most pressing environmental issues, from climate change to human/non-human relations, environment and culture, sustainability, food security, and environmental justice.

As a cross-disciplinary research Institute, we aim to broaden and develop public discourse on climate change and other significant environmental issues. In staying true to our multidisciplinary approach to addressing environmental issues, we welcome students in any degree, majors, and disciplines at the University of Sydney to contact us.

Why write for us?

  • Have your writing published and build a positive, professional online profile
  • Develop your writing skills for a new context and work with an editor
  • Join our network in the Young Researchers Society
  • Share your knowledge and passion for the environment and inspire others to get involved and make positive changes
  • Engage in public discourse on environmental issues


Submissions must fit (broadly) within at least one of our key research themes: Adaptation; Environmental Humanities; Food Systems; Justice; Sustainability and Transition.

Our call out theme for this semester is “creativity in climate communication”. Keep this theme in mind when crafting your pitch – we very much welcome creative interpretations and we are happy to help workshop your ideas to fit.
