#Who are we?

The UTS Enviro Collective is community for all peoples affected by and concerned about the climate crisis, extreme weather events and declining biodiversity. Specifically, we are the students at UTS that lead events that educate and engage other students to become more engaged with the environmental movement.

We also understand that these movements are intersectional, and we encourage our members to explore how the the climate movement disproportionately affects marginalised communities and, in particular, Indigenous Peoples. Indigenous knowledge is at the centre of the the movement, and there can be no climate justice without justice for First Nations’ Peoples.

We affect the environment, as much as we are affected by the environment. The Enviro Collective is not therefore merely for activists, nor merely for environmental science students, nor those in sustainable design and so on. 

If you are a student that cares about the wellbeing of others, you are welcome to become part of the enviro collective! Membership is free.

#What do we do?

In 2023, the enviro collective will focus on building a community. As mentioned above, we do not seek to represent only one subset of students, and we want that to be known by the UTS student body. It is important to feel welcomed and included in this movement, and this year we will be engaging students with interactive events, different avenues to activism and learning about how deeply connected environmental issues are with other communities.

That looks like casual banner painting and placard making, discussing current climate issues in a constructive space, utilising social media to highlight how prevalent climate issues are in our world, and speaking on how and why activism works before participating. We also have space for downtime, such as helping and maintaining a herb garden at UTS.

#Get in touch

UTS Enviro meets regularly (every fortnight or so) and we’re always looking to get new members involved in our decision-making—so come along!
