Member Profile

The University is addressing some of the world’s most complex issues by putting sustainability at the heart of our research, education, operations and in the way we care for Country. Our sustainability strategy guides how we will make an impact, locally and globally.

The University’s sustainability focus centres around the following pillars:

Enriching lives through research and education

We are working together to use our world-leading research and education, addressing some of the world’s most complex issues in sustainability facing the world to contribute to a long-term sustainable future.

Enabling resilient places and a responsible footprint

We are nurturing more sustainable and resilient campuses, and developing a culture of shared responsibility in our approach to sustainability.

Empowering good governance and coordination

We will be transparent and open to report our progress to demonstrate our enduring commitment to sustainability at all levels.

These pillars are supported by a foundation of caring for Country. No matter where we are in Australia, we are on Country. We must appreciate the complexity of the natural environment as it shifts and emerges over time and minimise negative human impact on it.

Make Your Change acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the Lands on which we live, play, advocate, and activate.  We acknowledge their continuing connection to Country and community, and pay our respect to Elders past and present. We recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First Australians.  We are committed to honouring their unique cultural, and spiritual relationship to the land, air, waters and seas—as well as their rich contributions to society. We acknowledge the sovereignty, land, and law of First Nations were never ceded—this always was and always will be the Land of First Nations people.


Global warming is not a problem we can compost and recycle our way out of. Join our mailing list to discover how to make your changes and have MASSIVE impact!
