The Environment Collective is one of seven departments within the ANU Student Association (ANUSA), and operates as an independent, democratically-run student group.
Its main goal is to advocate for the environment and sustainability, supporting students and others to learn about and act on environmental and social justice issues. They aim to educate students and others about sustainability by providing spaces for discussion and opportunities to learn and share knowledge.
Working for a sustainable future means realising a world in which all people and all beings can live in peace, dignity, and freedom. Recognising this, EC’s projects take a broader aim, addressing environmental issues in ways that overlap with other causes.
The ANU Environment Collective is bringing a farmer’s market to ANU campus for Orientation Week! Showcasing local produce, artisanal products, and featuring educational stalls about sustainable food, it will be a fantastic opportunity to nourish your belly and your brain!
Follow the ANU Farmer’s Market Facebook page for event updates.
Sustainable Food Guide
The upcoming markets also serve as the official launch for the Environment Collective’s “Sustainable Food Guide” – a resource for the ANU and broader community on sustainable dining, shopping, venue hire, and catering options. Free physical copies will be available on market day at the Environment Collective stall, and digital copies will be available on our website shortly after.
The Environment Collective holds weekly meetings on Tuesdays from 5PM – 6PM at the Food Co-Op.
They plan events, campaigns, and other projects. In particular, they aim to empower and support anyone interested in leading or co-hosting projects of their own. They want to encourage sustainability across all disciplines – whether activists or advocates, artists or scientists – and are here to support your idea!
